Now my thoughts on the book …..

Chapter books are fun to read no matter your age. Combine that with an inspiring character and you have a delightful story that will have you laughing. OSCAR, THE APPREHENSIVE APPARITION, is just such a story.

The author takes readers on an exciting adventure with Oscar where one can learn without realizing they are being taught. The author has created a main character with traits and fears young readers can relate to and learn from. Along the way more encouraging characters are discovered.

Another highlight of the story are the beautiful illustrations by the author. The vivid detailed artwork brings the story to life even more and will have you smiling.

While targeting the five to nine age group, this enchanting story is a quick and entertaining read for all ages. Don’t be surprised when you can’t put it down until you know what Oscar discovers in the woods.
