The Mystery of the Graffiti Ghoul Reviews
“The Mystery of the Graffiti Ghoul” centers around a 10-year old Chinese boy from a small town in Alberta. He is the only Chinese boy in town, but is friends with a french boy named Remi. Remi is in French class and Marty is in English class, however, they will be vulnerable to oppression if anyone ever found out about their friendship because they’re considered enemies based on their different classes. Marty and Remi found graffiti on the school shed one day and were accused of being responsible by the principal, Principal Henday. This led the two boys to begin their search for the graffiti ghoul, and to clear up their names.I liked Marty’s humour in contrast to the suspenseful plot. While reading, I grew increasingly curious, anticipating what the next plot twist would be. I found myself asking questions like “What made Trina wanting to find out who the graffiti ghoul was?”. Overall, it was a pleasure to read and I would rate this book a 4/5 . An enjoyable and simple quick read. I would recommend this book to an audience seeking a very simple and straightforward plot dotted with plenty of action.
This was a fun read - reminded me of Martyn Godfrey's books in a lot of respects. Will be saving this one for when Mini-Me is older.
I give this book a 2 star rating because the book doesn't make your want to read more because the text doesn't give enough clues which i would of been helpful to solve the mystery myself which would make me want to read on. But this bookn doesn't. That is why i rate this book a 2 star. SummaryThe principal finds graffiti on the shed,and determines to find out who did it. Marty Chan starts a new adventure,he trys to solve the mystery but Trina is trying to solve it too. The principal finds evidence that marty found in he's friends locker,and he gets the blame.After marty solves the case and becomes the hero of the schoolWhy I Picked Up This Book?I picked up this book because when I read the back of the book it sounded interesting and I read the first few chapters and it was making me read more.Also, I looked at the cover which had amazing illustrator,and the title sounded great and the font on the title. Why I Finished This BookI finished this book because even though it didn't fit into my category but it still drew my attention Who I Think Will Read This Book And Why ?I think people who like mystery books who be a good choice for them because it is a mystery book and it is easy to understand it.
Marty is a 10-year old Chinese boy in a small town in Alberta. In fact, he is the only Chinese boy in town. Because of this (and it doesn't help that his mother picks out his clothes!), he gets picked on. He does have one friend, a French boy, Remi (but because Remi is in the French class and Marty in the English class, no one can know they are friends). When Remi and Marty discover some graffiti on the school shed, they are initially accused of spraying it themselves! They decide they must find out who did it... This is a kids' book and I really enjoyed it. There is a lot of humour going on in the book, and Marty Chan does such a good job getting inside kids' heads, I think. It seemed like it, anyway. Obviously, being a kids' book, it was fairly simple, but it was just a really fun book!
