Agatha Parrot has crazy red hair and freckles. She lives on Odd Street which is so named because the houses are located on the odd side of the street. Coincidentally Agatha’s 3 closest friends, Ivy, Bianca, and Martha, also live on Odd Street. And at the end of the block is their school, aptly named the Odd Street School. Oddly enough the school bell begins chiming in the middle of the night, disturbing everyone on Odd Street and beyond. After the tolling carries on for several nights, Agatha and company are certain that a ghost is to blame. Word travels fast and ghost fever takes over the school. At the principal’s hastily organized Ghost Watch, a spooky situation quickly turns silly as Agatha and her friends discover who haunts the hallowed halls. Poskitt uses liberal doses of humor to take the scary out of this mystery. Hargis’ hilarious black and white illustrations comically mock the characters’ antics. Agatha Parrot and the Odd Street School Ghost is a cheeky little ghost story for young readers.
