Third Grade GhoulsBook - 2001
In Third Grade Stinks!, young worrywart Gordie works through his start-of-school jitters. In this follow-up, Gordie is anxious about his costume for the upcoming Halloween parade. He wants to be something scary and fierce that will silence his tough, intimidating classmates, but he can't come up with ideas. What's worse, he's promised to walk timid first-grader Timmy, who's terrified of Halloween, through the parade. The outcome is contrived, but there are some groan-worthy jokes along the way, and many of the school situations and details ring true. Even if kids know what's coming at the end, those who are making the transition to chapter books will still enjoy this lighthearted story of confronting fears and outwitting bullies.
