In the book A Ghost Named Wanda by Dan Greenburg, Zack wants to get rid of Wanda, the ghost. This is how it all started. At the beginning, Wanda came to Zack’s house and she messed up the whole place. Zack’s dad got really mad. In the middle, Zack was talking to Vernon, the mean kid. He had a ghost in his house too (Cecil). Zack is a neat person, so Wanda is making his house messy, and Vernon is a messy person, so Cecil is making his house neat. This is driving them nuts! Get the book to find out what Zack and Vernon do about the two ghosts!

A Ghost Named Wanda is a great book. The pictures tell more about the words. In the book, there is a ghost and you can see through her. I like how the author shows a lot of detail. In the book it says, “The pants I had taken off the night before and thrown on the floor were now hanging from the roller of the window shade.” I think parts of the book are funny. Zack likes his house to be neat, and Wanda is making it messy. Vernon is a messy guy, so Cecil is making his house clean. This is driving them crazy!

I would recommend this book to people who like fantasy and realistic fiction because there is a ghost named Wanda in the book. Also, this book is recommended to people who like realistic fiction because everything is normal, except for the ghost. I also recommend this book to people who are in first, second, or third grade because it is funny. If you like this review, go to the store and buy A Ghost Named Wanda by Dan Greenburg.
