In The Northern Frights, the third book in the spooky Scary School series, Charles “New Kid” Nukid and his friends, including Lattie, a girl ninja, must fight an epic battle with an ice dragon to save their school. But first they must survive going to Scream Academy as exchange students. And that may be hard, because the Academy has an abominable snowman for a principal, a Headless Horseman as one of the teachers, and the students are yetis, trolls, and ogres!

Will Charles survive to make an ancient prophecy come to pass and save everyone? The illustrated Scary School trilogy by Derek the Ghost, with its mix of humor, scares, and adventure, is a perfect pick for middle-grade readers of the Wayside School series and the Zach Files books.

In this second book in the Scary School series, the students of Scary School are off to Monster Forest.

School may be scary, but the forest has a few frights of its own, including bearodactyls; Captain Pigbeard, fearsome leader of the Monster-Pirates; and his fiancée, Princess Zogette. When Zogette falls in love with Charles and follows him to Scary School, Captain Pigbeard raises his army in pursuit. But what the monster army doesn’t realize is that the teachers and students of Scary School are even more frightening than anything in the Monster Forest.

Fans of the Intergalactic Bed and Breakfast series and the Bailey School books will love the way the Scary School series for middle-grade readers mixes spooky scares and laughs.
