It's a spooky time to be a wicked reader in middle grades. There are so many spooktacular topics out there that we are just goozing with excitement over. There are also some ghoulish, wicked ways to take a story that you read and create something fang-tastic. 

Are you looking to excite your students into creating something eerie? Something magical that will have them enter your room at their own risk? 


In Edison Beaker and the Creature Seeker (Book1: The Night Door) your students will follow the graphic novel pages into the Underwhere (yes, you read that right), into the darkness. 

In this hilarious graphic novel, Edison Beaker is about to find out what services the family business, Beaker Creature Control, really offers. (Hint: forget about rat and roach removal . . . think monster hunting!)

Edison Beaker and his young sister Tesla are staying with their Uncle Earl, manager of the family pest control company, when an alarm sounds and he has no choice but to drag them along on a service call.

They should have listened when he warned them to "stay in the van."

Monster-sized mayhem ensues when the kids chase their escaped hamster into a mysterious warehouse--and suddenly they are the ones being chased when all sorts of creepy creatures scurry, slink, and stomp through a secret Night Door.

The first of two new middle-school graphic novels that introduce a funny, smart, likable, reluctant hero and his wisecracking younger sister whose adventures are sure to appeal to readers of Lunch LadyHilo, and Caveboy Dave

Have your students paint the town dead with this ghoulish writing activity. After students read Edison Beaker, have them create their own spooky scene or story with these blank graphic novel sheets.
