About book: Aku selalu ingin menemukan jalan rahasia. Sekarang aku yakin, aku memiliki kunci menuju salah satu jalan rahasiaAraminta Spookie sangat kesal terhadap bibi Tabby. Pasalnya, Bibinya itu berniat menjual rumah mereka dan pindah ke apartemen. Memang sih, rumah mereka sangat besar dan menakutkan, bahkan Araminta berharap rumah itu benar benar berhantu sehingga tidak ada yang mau membelinya. Saking kesalnya, di papan pemberitahuan "dijual" yang diletakkan di depan rumah, ia menulis bahwa rumahnya mengerikan dan berhantu. Tetapi sialnya, masih saja ada yang ingin membeli rumah itu. Bibi Paddy bahkan sudah mewanti wanti agar Araminta tidak berlaku kurang ajar terhadap para tamu tersebut. Ya,memang gadis itu seringkali menakut nakuti calon pembeli rumahnya, sehingga kesepakatan jual beli tidak pernah terjadi. Tapi bukan Araminta namanya, kalau ia tidak keras kepala. Nah, saat mencari cara untuk mengerjai calon tamu Bibinya, Araminta menemukan misteri tersembunyi di rumah tersebut. Ternyata, rumah itu benar benar berhantu!!Sebuah novel singkat dengan jumlah halaman yang tipis dan ilustrasi yang membuat saya dengan cepat menuntaskan buku ini. Ceritanya juga tidak menakutkan sama sekali, sehingga menurut saya pribadi, anak anak di sekolah dasar pun cocok membaca buku ini. Karakter Araminta memang sedikit keterlaluan, jadi saat membaca, perlu didampingi orang tua. Tetapi sebenarnya Araminta anak yang cerdas dan pemberani. Bayangkan saja, saat ia menjelajahi misteri di dalam rumah tersebut, ia membawa benang yang kelak akan menuntunnya kembali ke pintu masuk. Lihat, cerdas nian bukan? Terlebih lagi meski dia tinggal di rumahnya yang besar dan menakutkan, Araminta sama sekali tidak takut. Ia bahkan senang menjelajah dan berimajinasi tentang rumah itu meski seorang diri.Sebuah cerita yang menyenangkan untuk diikuti. Jadi tak sabar untuk membaca lanjutannya ^^

Araminta lebt zusammen mit ihrer Tante Tabby, Onkel Drac und einer Menge Fledermäusen in einem herrlichen alten Haus, dass so ganz nach Aramintas Geschmack ist. Tante Tabby ist leider nicht so begeistert und nach einem wiederholten Kampf mit dem alten Boiler, beschließt sie das Haus zu verkaufen, aber sie hat ihre Rechnung ohne Araminta gemacht, die um ihr Zuhause kämpfen will.Der Auftakt zu einer niedlichen Kinderbuch-Serie. Lebt Pippi Langstrumpf in der Villa Kunterbunt, so hat Araminta in diesem alten Haus ein Zuhause, in dem sie ihre Fantasie ausleben kann. Sie ist auf der Suche nach Gespenstern und Geheimgängen, schraubt die verbeulte Ritterrüstung Sir Horace zusammen und weiß sich gut alleine zu beschäftigen. Jedes ‚normale‘ Kind würde Stehhaare bekommen, wenn es Onkel Drac in seinem Schlafsack baumeln und Bekanntschaft mit seinen Fledermäusen machen würde, nicht so die abenteuerliche Araminta. Als sie hört, dass Tante Tabby das Haus verkaufen will, nimmt sie den Kampf gegen mögliche Käufer auf und ist dabei sehr einfallsreich. Ein entzückendes, unblutiges Buch für kleine Gruselfreunde, die mit Sicherheit ihre Freude an dieser witzigen Geschichte haben werden.

#1 Araminta Spooky series - Children's bookFun and entertaining book about Araminta Spooky, who lives in a haunted house with her Uncle Drac (who loves his bats) and Aunt Tabby. There's an empty suit of armor that turns out to be where Sir Horace, a ghost, lives. He's very friendly, but his suit of armor is constantly falling to pieces.I liked this a lot! When Aunt Tabby gets fed up with boiler problems and puts the house up for sale, Araminta plans a series of Awful Ambushes and schemes to scare off potential buyers. She enlists Sir Horace, the ghost in a suit of armor, and the hundreds of spiders who live in the house, in her series of escapades.Imaginative and entertaining illustrations throughout the book :)"Fun escapism for readers who like their spooky without the scary." - School Library Journal

Are you afraid of ghost? Well, if yes, Araminta seems to the opposite. She has been looking for her own ghost for years. She live in Spookie House, with Aunt Tabby and Uncle Drac. One day, Aunt Tabby want them to move to another place. She was frustated about the boiler which likely caused troubles. She thought the Spookie House is a little bigger for three of them, she want them to move to the smaller place that she could handle.Knowing that they have to move, Araminta arrange the plan to defend the Spookie House. She doesn't want to move, she like this house and believes that there are ghosts in this place that she hasn't discover. And the adventure begin.I enjoy reading this book. I haven't read the Septimus Heap series before, so I don't know what kind of writing style Angie Sage would bring in. But I like this. Light reading, imaginative, funny, and entertaining. Araminta is such a brave girl with thousands creative idea to keep Spookie House. The name of each character is funny too, like Mr. & Mrs. Wizzard, Uncle Drac (who fond of bats and keep them in his room), even Araminta Spookie itself is a funny name. This book contains many illustration, like this one:[image error]
Little Miss and the Legomeister
As much as the kidlets and I love the Septimus Heap series, I was surprised to find out that Angie Sage had another series I'd never heard of.It's quite a bit shorter and less complex than Magyk; it's an early chapter book geared toward younger children.The Addams family type characters fascinated my kids, and they thought it was pretty funny. This book (and The Sword in the Grotto) kept them mesmerized for nearly five hours during our road trip from Nevada to Oregon.It was fun to listen to, and the humor was sometimes absurd and other times wry. It did bother me, a bit, that Araminta sabotaging her parental figure, Aunt Tabby, was the major plot conflict in this story.
