Scout has a circus for a family, and an elephant living in his backyard. Ellie has her own cottage, convertible car, and a way of stampeding chaotic fun into every thing she does.

Ellie is such a crazy creature, she even laughs her way through Haunted Halloween Houses. Sheesh, as if she isn't already a menace to be around, now she wants to turn the family house into a place of horror.

Scout has to hide his fear of undead creatures, and howling monsters by helping with the family Haunted House. Once again, he is being corralled into assisting Ellie in her quest for wild merriment and dangerous laughter.

The Scout and Ellie series is meant for seven to nine year olds who are into laughing. In the background are friends, family, and imagination. The author is truly concerned that kids may grow up wanting to have as much joy as Ellie does every day.


While Ellie managed to have fun throughout the entire book, Scout did not. Since that is pretty accurate for how children often feel, I guess this book was well written. It was not my favorite however, It always makes me feel bad when anyone feels left out or their feelings get hurt. The question is how can that all be resolved as they do and there is a HEA/HFN at the end. This book is a great choice for those who are learning to read, roughly ages 7 to 9 with a good sense of humor.

As it was an audiobook, I take Samuel Deeter's performance into account as well. He did a good job of keeping the story clear and understandable while separating the character's voices and making them interesting. I would certainly listen to his narration again.

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Performance: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Story: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Twelve-year-old Freya enjoys karate and is the only one in her class who’s trusted with a part-time job. But everything changes when she meets a boy with yellow eyes. She learns about the guardians, and how an age-old fight has prevented them from fulfilling their purpose. 

Freya finds new friends in the Crow tribe, but not everything in the castle is blissful. A destructive shadow lies within her and all she needs to do to release it is close her eyes. 

But as the guardians’ war rages on, Freya realises that, although the shadow’s power can be useful, it can’t create peace. To do that, Freya and her friends must solve the mysterious crime that began the war. Can they bring the guardians together before they destroy each other?

Nowadays, Clemency works as a primary school teacher in the tip-top north of Scotland. To encourage her pupils to read, she writes them a story every Christmas, and sometimes before the Summer Holiday, when them as the main characters.
