Booktalk: "Frank is a washed-up ghost hunter who sends ghosts on earth back to the afterworld. Garth is a boy who’s dying of an incurable disease. But even though Garth isn’t dead yet, Frank accidentally sends him into the afterworld. In the afterworld, it turns out Garth isn’t just a sick boy. He finds out he has extraordinary powers in the ghost world that he never had on earth. And that would be a big help to Vaugner, an evil ghost who wants to control the entire spirit world." ( )

Good book for reluctant readers in the middle school setting. Nice blend of creepiness and humor. I loved what the author did with Benedict Arnold. ( )

This graphic novel keeps getting better and better with each read! I really want to own it. And the author totally needs to create another book set in the same universe.

Long Live the Bone King! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0545210283, Paperback)

A page-turning adventure of a boy's journey to the land of ghosts and back.

Imagine Garth Hale's surprise when he's accidentally zapped to the spirit world by Frank Gallows, a washed-out ghost wrangler. Suddenly Garth finds he has powers the ghosts don't have, and he's stuck in a world run by the evil ruler of Ghostopolis, who would use Garth's newfound abilities to rule the ghostly kingdom. When Garth meets Cecil, his grandfather's ghost, the two search for a way to get Garth back home, and nearly lose hope until Frank Gallows shows up to fix his mistake.
