Once Upon A Book – Charlee Rae's Book Reviews

"Books Fall Open, You Fall In"

The Ghastly McNastys Fright In The Night by Lyn Gardner


I rated this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I won this book as part of a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

Gruesome and Grisly McNasty, the pirate twins, will stop at nothing for treasure. They hijack a fishing trawler and force the crew to walk to plank. They then head out for Little Snoring where the treasure of the legendary Captain Syd is rumored to be buried. Tat and Hetty, who are best friends, realize the pirate twins have returned and plan on giving them the fright of their night.

This is the third book in the series. I did not read the others, which I think in order to understand who all the characters are, would have been helpful. However it was still a fun and quirky story. A middle-grade chapter book, its geared towards children ages 7-10. Filled with silly and gross humor, it is sure to entertain children of all ages. I found the book to be enjoyable and humorous. The pirates are disgusting and nasty (hence the last name McNasty) and the heroes, Tat and Hetty, are smart and savvy kids. There is a cast of other unique characters including, Dog, their pet cat, and Peg Leg Polly, a talking parrot. The illustrations are great and the warnings about leaving the book unattended are funny and give a nice, quick break from the story. A great book for children and adults alike.
