Reviews of Penelope and The Ghost's Treasure by Ron D. Voigts

Joleene Naylor reviewed on Aug. 24, 2012

This book picks up where the last Penelope book left off. She's on her way to start boarding school - and more than a little miserable about the prospect. And no wonder, on the first day of school she earns the nickname "teacher Killer". things can only get worse from there.

With a new batch of zanny, off beat characters, and a visit from a few old ones, this was easily as good as the first book, if not better. Again, I would recommend this for 10 +. Also of note, it's not necessary to have read the first book in order to enjoy this one, though it does make it better.

As to the mystery? I did solve a portion of the mystery (no telling which bit) but not all of it. Well done, again, Mr. Voigts.

(though this said reviewed right after purchase it is because I read a version given to me by the author, so I had to buy it now in order to review it.)

An interesting adventure with lots of twists and turns. I thought the characters were a bit old-fashioned and at times, created with very broad strokes which made it hard to believe in them. A bit more depth would have helped. Middle grade readers (not YA teens) will enjoy the way events pile up to a satisfying conclusion.

Rick has nailed essence of this book in his review. Enjoyable by all ages but especially suited for YA readers. Ron pulls you into story and keeps you focused on progress of Penelope. Want a truly enjoyable read this is for your library.

Penelope's ability to get in and out of danger at her prep school equals her inquisitive nature. That nature exceeds the adults in this quirky, funny, and endearing story of a young girl who must solve her own problems even if they include murder, ghosts, and treasures, AND the roadblocks adults put in her way. So myopic are the adult's attention, Penelope at times becomes her own McGuffin. Brilliant. Ron's ability to create an enjoyable YA story that adults can enjoy is admirable. - Rick Bylina, author of ONE PROMISE TOO MANY & A MATTER OF FAITH
