This book was ok I guess and its a decent ghost story, but I didnt really like it all that much. The ghosts are creepy and the history of the farm suitably grisly, but nothing truely unexpected happened. I didnt find the main character particularly likable and still dont understand why the problems in the story werent resolved differently. ( )

All The Lovely Bad Ones is a scary children's book perfect for budding horror fans. It's scary, supernatural, and suspenseful, and full of twists and turns no child will see coming! It is also surprisingly heartwarming, with great character development, familial relationships, friendships, and conflict resolution that would be helpful for any child to read and learn from. This may not be something to read aloud to a class, but it could definitely belong on a classroom bookshelf for some variety for the students. As a cross-content twist, it has great historical elements that would be great for a Social Studies environment as well as ELAR! ( )

****Rating 3.86 out of 5 stars****

"Turning my back on the wreckage, I followed Grandmother to the dining room. She could chase off the psychics, she could make me clean up my room, she could pretend last night hadn't happened-she could even send Corey and me back to New York-but the ghosts were here, and they weren't leaving.
Not until they got what they wanted...whatever that was." - Mary Downing Hahn, All the Lovely Bad Ones

14 year old Travis and 13 year old Corey are staying at their grandmother's inn for the summer instead of camp. They are excited to have a whole summer to do what they wish for once. After there grandmother tells them a story about how the inn was known to be haunted, but it was non-sense of course. They two decide to pull a prank to make the inn seem haunted, and if it brought in extra customers for there grandmother, then all the better. But soon after odd occurrences start happening around the inn, but it isn't them. Could there innocent pranking awoken something? Soon they are thrown into a mystery is sad as it is terrifying.

This book was actually pretty scary. It was obviously directed toward the younger teens but still had a lot to offer in my opinion. It wasn't the most original ghost story, but still it was entertaining. It had an amazing back story that really gets your emotional side going. Its not a very long book, but it the pace was perfect for this one.

Travis and his sister Corey are happy to be spending the summer with their grandmother at her Inn in Vermont rather than being sent to summer camp. They love pranks and having fun (which got them asked not to return to said summer camp). When they discover that the Inn has a reputation for being haunted, they decide to fake some ghostly activity. Their antics might scare up some extra business for their grandmother's Inn and also provide some fun for them. Little do they know that their foolishness will awaken real ghosts at the Inn and cause more fright than fun....

This book was a fun read!! The story line isn't that original. It's been done before many, many times, but I still enjoyed it. The kids thought they were going to have a great time scaring their grandmother's guests, but they ended up scared themselves. As a mom, that made me smile. :) The grandmother was a bit annoying at times. Even when faced with clear evidence her grandkids weren't behind the occurrences, she still pretty much refused to believe what she was seeing and hearing with her own eyes. But then again, if I experienced the same thing, I don't know that I would believe it either.

The book is written for middle grade children, but it's an enjoyable, afternoon read for adults, too. There are some scary events, but nothing age inappropriate. This would be a great story for kids to read on their own, or to have read out loud to them.

The cover art is deliciously spooky!! Love it!

My rating: 8/10
Ages 10

An interesting middle grade ghost story. There is a mystery to be solved, lost things to find, and spirits (good and evil) to put to rest. I very much enjoyed reading this book. ( )

Stacy Rosenthal (Library Media Connection, April 2009)
Hahn has written an enjoyable ghost story that reminded me of Skellig by David Almond (Delacorte Press, 1999). Travis, who narrates the story, and his sister Corey spend the summer at their grandmother’s reputedly haunted Fox Hill Inn in Vermont and just as they have done everywhere else, they cause trouble by pretending to see ghosts. But the trouble they seem to cause is that they wake up the real sleeping ghosts, or do they? The book keeps readers asking if the ghosts really exist and what will happen to Fox Hill, grandmother, and the siblings. Librarians should be aware that one of the ghosts, Miss Ada, had hung herself from a tree, and she tries to encourage Travis to do the same, but he does not. There is some challenging vocabulary. This would make a great read-aloud for Halloween or for a class studying mysteries. Recommended 2008, Clarion Books, 192pp., $16 hc. Ages 9 to 14.

Hahn has mastered the art of the not-too-creepy ghost story for upper-elementary-school readers, and this latest offering combines chills, thrills, and poignant historical fiction. Twelve-year-old Travis and his younger sister, Corey, are spending the summer with their grandmother at her Vermont bed-and-breakfast. Born mischief makers, the siblings hear that the inn is rumored to be haunted and decide to manufacture some ghostly effects for the guests. Unfortunately, they arouse the real ghosts: young boys who died in the early 1800s, when the property was the county poor farm, and Miss Ada, the evil spinster who caused their deaths. The rambunctious young ghosts cause a lot of ruckus, but they are ultimately endearing beings, whereas Miss Ada is deliciously horrible. Readers will learn about the history of poor farms while reveling in the genuinely creepy hauntings Hahn describes so well. The truly scary cover may deter some readers; reassure them this title belongs to the same comfortably spooky genre as The Doll in the Garden (1986) and Wait till Helen Comes (1989). Grades 4-7

To all the little children:---The happy ones; and sad ones;
The sober and the silent ones; the boisterous and glad ones;
The good ones---Yes, the good ones, too; and all the lovely bad ones.
