In My Mail Box (Week 16)

Sorry I have not been around here due to my University works aka graduation projects :) .

In My Mail Box is a weekly MEME by The Story Siren and I fall in love with it -The MEME not the Siren-

I got from Masr Public Library;

The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2) by Lemony Snicket

Dear Reader,If you have picked up this book with the hope of finding a simple and cheery tale. I'm afraid you have picked up the wrong book altogether. The story may seem cheery at first, when the Baudelaire children spend time in the company of some interesting reptiles and a giddy uncle, but don't be fooled. If you know anything at all about the unlucky Baudelaire children, you already know that even pleasant events lead down the same road to misery.
In fact, within the pages you now hold in your hands, the three siblings endure a car accident, a terrible odor, a deadly serpent, a long knife, a large brass reading lamp, and the reappearance of a person they'd hoped never to see again.
I am bound to record these tragic events, but you are free to put this book back on the shelf and seek something lighter.
With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket...

The Invisible FriendThe Invisible Friend by Louise Arnold

Grey Arthur is a very normal ghost. Too normal for his own liking. He's so normal he doesn't even know what group he belongs to: not scary enough to be a Screamer, or naughty enough to be a Poltergeist ... each different thing Arthur tries to be, he fails.

One afternoon, when Grey Arthur is thinking very despondantly how unfair life is, he senses the exact same emotion coming from a boy far away. And as he follows his instincts he reaches Tom's house.

Tom is a very normal boy, with brown hair and brown eyes and normal parents. But somehow people at school don't seem to think that. He doesn't fit in. People call him weird.

When Grey Arthur senses Tom's unhappiness he realises they're not so different after all. He doesn't feel he fits in with the other ghosts, either; and that is when he realises what he is going to be. He's going to be Tom's official Invisible Friend and help him solve his problems.

Ghost School Ghost School by Louise Arnold

Grey Arthur finally knows where he belongs - at the side of Tom Golden - as his invisible friend.

He's been thinking that maybe there are other ghosts like him, who aren’t very good at haunting and would make perfect invisible friends. And so the School for Invisible Friends begins ...

But where have all the good ghosts gone? Something very strange is going on and even things in the Real World don’t seem right!

Faced with the prospect of losing Arthur, Tom realises that he not only needs his invisible friend, but that Arthur needs him too, and now, more than ever ...


Golden & Grey: A Good Day for HauntingGolden & Grey: A Good Day for Haunting by Louise Arnold

After his triumph over a ghost collector and a doctor who does no good, Tom Golden thinks life is finally...well, golden. Grey Arthur and his ghostly crew have happily settled into their roles as Invisible Friends while Tom has made a new human friend with Pick-Nose Pete.
But when one friendly ghost is overly enthusiastic about his duties, the TV show Exceedingly Haunted Homes of England is called in to investigate. A hysterical fear of ghosts takes over the school, and the Invisible Friends are glad that they witness the chaos unheard and unseen. Too bad that the same cannot be said for the ghosts in the world beyond.
The disappearance of the Crown Jewels in a rather Poltergeist-like manner is trouble enough, but a frightening specter caught on film and a knight seen charging through streets and pedestrians spell trouble. Restoration of the peace between the ghostly and human realms may be too much for one boy to handle, but Tom hopes that the help of Grey Arthur and the Invisible Friends may be just what he needs to track down the cause of this supernatural chaos.
In this third installment to the Golden & Grey series, Louise Arnold takes the reader on an exciting adventure full of Laundry Runs, ancient castles, and the ever dark and dangerous woods.
