The Zack Files: Great-Grandpa’s in the Litter ox, Through the Medicine Cwabinet , A Ghost Named Wanda
by Dan Greenburg
These titles are in our Emerging Readers section, especially helpful for students learning English. Zack, the main character, lives in New York City, going between his mom and dad’s homes. Zack, always interested in weird stuff, is not skeptical when strange things happen. A Berkeley High graduate, now a student at Merritt College, recommended this series to a student who asked for a funny book during a time our alumna just happened to be visiting the library. My favorite is the third book, since Zack goes to the library to get a magic spell that will get rid of a ghost in his dad’s apartment. Who knew libraries could offer such help?
