Haunted Hike (Elliot's Park) review ↠ 104 á Join Elliot and his friends for a spooky adventure in the second book in bestselling author Patrick Carman hilarious Elliot's Park series for 6 to 8 year olds It's Halloween in Elliot's Park and the suirrels are all in costume ready for some trick or treating fun But when Elliot Chip Twitch andN Elliot's Park and the suirrels are all in costume ready for some trick or treating fun But when Elliot Chip Twitch and the rest of the gang think they see a ghost in Camp Ca. I'm uite surprised that Patrick Carman is capable of writing such a blah book I loved his The Land of Elyon series and while this book's audience is a much younger crowd it felt like a 12 year old wrote it There are a ton of characters with really no introduction other than the glossary of characters at the end of the book The story really wasn't anything special it was actually pretty lame And I wasn't really sure what the point of the book or the multitude of characters was all about it is definitely just chapter books to tell tales of what is happening between this group of suirrel friends and that's it So not only is it poorly written but it's hard to care about the story unless you really just want to know what these suirrels are doing on a certain dayThe illustrations are fun though and the book is short and easy to read For beginning readers I'm sure they'd enjoy these books But as an adult who looks for well written children's literature I am very disappointed especially because I know Patrick Carman is capable of writing good books

The Suirrel Scouts are all prepared for their Halloween Haunted Hike across Elliot's Park but it turns out to be scarier than they'd expected The suirrels must conuer their fears of the rope swing the field house and scariest of all ghosts Who is it who's haunting the park Can the young suirrels find out in time to make it to the Halloween party at Camp CanyonEh There's a lot here that doesn't uite work There's an implication that we're all super familiar with the characters and frankly there are just too many of them crammed into 60 pages There is a full cast of characters with descriptions in the back of the book but instead of clarifying who's who it underscores the idea that the cast members are too indistinct to warrant individual attention Each one has one trait which is mentioned in the book with very little context Example one character appears out of nowhere and burps It was a strawberry flavored burp just like the soda pop Grossness aside the cast list describes her as liking soda pop but this is the only mention of her in the book 3 stars because I don't really read a lot for this age group maybe 2nd 3rd grade so I'm not super familiar with what the norms are but really this is kind of a muddle
