I love this series In this book, the trio heads to Hollywood where their book, 43 Old Cemetery Road, is being made into a movie Shooting a movie doesn t turn out to be nearly as fun as it sounds though After all the legal paperwork the movie doesn t read anything like the books and all the stylists are turning Iggy and Seymour into unrecognizable versions of themselves.Olive is rewritten to be an evil ghost and a major movie star is cast as the lead As it turns out, she signed a bad contract tha [...]
I thought the book was amazing I liked the format of the book, and how is was written like letters and newspaper articles I also liked how Kate Klise made their names into phrases For example, Moe Block Busters, and Ivana Oscar One thing I didn t like was how short the book was SPOILER ALERT My favorite part of the book was when they cut Myra Manes hair Also, when Ivana Oscar asked Seymour to be her adopted grandson A part of the book I did not like was when Iggy and Seymour got too caught up in [...]
The functional family of boy, writer, and ghost go to Hollywood hoping for stardom, except things don t quite turn out as they d planned Hollywood, Dead Ahead was funny, and the play on names was great, especially Ivana Oscar I m not sure why it was not as good as the other books have been, but it was a bit slow Even though I really liked Seymour and his family, I did not find care about the other characters much This book has one really great line thoughI won t spoil it, but I will hint Read th [...]
Vorab es handelt sich um Band 5 der Serie um die Friedhofstra e 43 Im Mittelpunkt steht der Schrifsteller Ignaz B Griesgram, die Geisterdame Oliva C Spence und ihr Adoptivsohn und Illustrator Severin Hoffnung Die ganze Geschichte mit dem Schriftstellertum versteht man wahrscheinlich besser, wenn man die 4 B nde zuvor gelesen hat Ansonsten hat man aber keine Schwierigkeiten, in diesen band reinzukommen, er besticht v.a mit Wortwitzen siehe Namensgebung und ich bin dem Humor des Buches restlos ver [...]

I liked this book, but I didn t enjoy it nearly as much as the third one in this series, Till Death Do Us Bark, or the fourth one, The Phantom of the Post Office Ivana Oscar was a very enjoyable new character, and Moe Block Busters and Myra Manes were nicely villainous, but I didn t like that they plotted to kill Ivana I have a feeling this won t faze the kids who enjoy this series, but as an adult, I thought it a bit inappropriate in a children s story I did like that Seymour was pivotal in hel [...]

This fifth novel in the 43 Cemetary Road oeuvre has Iggy, Seymour and, yes, eventhe ghostly ghostwriter Olive C Spense heading for Hollywood to star in a big screen adaptation of their own story, now a best selling book series But there s a few snags Producer Block Buster, the Spielberg of his generation at least he WOULD have you believe THAT has asked a live actress to portray Lady Spense, NOT some fuddy ghostie with glasses andweeeel, that s it She s portrayed by the formerly ravishing now RA [...]
Like many other readers, I find this series delightful because of the terrific word play the books always contain This one is no letdown as Seymour Hope, Ignatius B Grumply, and Olive C Spence, accept an offer from a hot Hollywood director interested in turning their 43 Old Cemetery Road stories into a movie But nothing goes as planned, and Olive arrives to find that she doesn t even have a part in the film Seymour and Ignatius also face their own challenges, as they seem drawn to the spotlight [...]

I love this series I love the humor and wordplay lots of punning, the names alone say it all Moe Block Busters, Hugh Briss, Ivana Oscar, etc I know this series won t be everyone s cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoy these stories told entirely through letters, memos, newspaper articles, photos, ads, and anything else the author and illustrator can think up There isn t a whole lot of depth here, these are mostly stories that are light and easy to read, yet each book does have a theme This one focu [...]
This book is really getting back on track to the Klise sisters early works, and I love it The plot was still pretty simplistic, nowhere near as engagingly tangled as Letters from Camp, but the added plot from the film producers was a hopeful addition More of that please In their other serial work, Regarding the, each book led up to the next, where these could pretty much be stand alones, which, as a dedicated reader, is sad to see Where has their complexity gone I know their earlier novels weren [...]
Olive C Spence, Ignatius B Grumply, and Seymour Hope, residents of Spence Mansion 43 Old Cemetery Road, are thrilled when their book has been acquired for the movie rights by famous direction, Moe Block Busters They are thrilled that they will travel to Hollywood and star in their own story But, of course, things get out of hand and the deal isn t all it s cracked up to be That s when Olive takes matters into her own invisible hands and rewrites the script Mega star, Ivana Oscar, is in on all th [...]
I ve seen this book around plenty of times but hadn t picked it up, until now.I d always found the art on the cover charming, and the same can be said for it s charactersEach one of the main characters are darling, well rounded people yes I will go so far as to call them that, even the ghost miss Olive By having the story be told through letters written from person to person you are able to get a better feel for who everyone is, especially with the way they use their words as well as the handwri [...]
Surely Seymour, Olive and Ignatius won t let fame and fortune go to their heads , or will they When the trio receive a letter from Moe Block Busters, founder and president of Buster Boy Entertainment Hollywood, CA , regarding making 43 Old Cemetery Road into a movie, Seymour is gung ho about the prospect, Ignatius is terribly against, and Olive, well, she just can t wait Of course, getting to Hollywood means traveling by air to get there quickly and, well, Olive is a ghost and bizarre occurrence [...]
I love reading books by Kate Klise The illustrations and the plots are always so interesting, you just want to keep reading This book is no different I really wish I would have read the first four books in the series, but I wasn t even aware of the series It is about a father, Mr Grumply, his son Seymour, and their dead mother Olive They own this fabulous mansion and have been writing a story about it for their local paper Then a sneaky movie director gets them to sign a contract to make a movie [...]
The fifth in the 43 Old Cemetery Road series, Seymour, his guardian Ig, and the ghost Olive go to Hollywood where their book is being made into a feature film Filled with lots of jokes, puns, and humor relating to the film business, this exaggerates many of the truths about the dark side of the film business but it is grounded in reality As always, the series features lots of hand written correspondence, cartoon artwork, faux newspaper clippings, and other visuals that will attract reluctant rea [...]
Ahhhe long awaited 5th book in this wonderful children s series by Kate Klised she did not fail to impress So much fun to read and know that Ignatius, Olive and Seymour remain the same sweet lovable family in the endeven though the lights and glamour of Hollywood got to 2 of them pretty quickly Welcome to their newest friend Ivana and we are ever hopeful that there will be a few books in this series.cially since Ms Klise ends her book with the ever familiar line The End for now.
Like I said in my review of book 4, this book is just as cute and fun as the others in the series But I still have my hesitations about the series as a whole because I don t want it to go on forever I guess as long as it s still amusing, power to it It also doesn t stop me from wanting to read the new series by the Klise sisters And, finally, I wish all their books were popular in my current library when I worked in a school library, they checked out like crazy, but at my current library, they [...]
The 5th book in Klise s 43 Old Cemetery Road series maintains the rapid fire POV changes, epistolary form and clever humor of previous installments The off beat family at the heart of the story includes a ghost named Olive, Ignatious the reclusive writer and their adopted son, Seymour When they re coerced into signing away the rights to their books to an unscrupulous Hollywood producer, they team up with 92 year old femme fatal, Ivana Oscar to win their story back Could stand alone, but helpful [...]
Devoured this delicious title in one sitting Love, love, love the Klise sisters epistolary novels and this is among my favorites Iggy, Olive and Seymour are headed to Hollywood because a big producer wants to turn 43 Old Cemetery Road into a movie Of course, hilarity ensues and lessons are learned along the way The reader is shown dark side of fame and fortune I m giving this this book 5 stars and would highly recommend to others.
I particularly enjoy this series because of their format The story is told through letters, postcards, and newspaper articles that are mixed in throughout the book Character names may go over the heads of young readers, but when reading with an older reader it can be fun to help decode names such as Moe Block Busters and Ivana Oscar This is a great series for children who are fans of books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries, but who are looking for a book with a bit to it.
it was ok I have to say, I love these books but I just can t get into them any it feels weird when you grow up and your favorite authors styles don t grow with you then you start to think You must be an adult kid to write these books so well and they I want to say Oh, just grow up and write books for me again.
In the newest installment of the 43 Old Cemetery Road series, the writing crew is off to Hollywood to make a movie of their books But they aren t prepared for treacherous studio execs and the effects of instant fame.I haven t read any of the previous books but that didn t matter The story stands on its own.
The gang from 43 Old Cemetery Road heads out to Hollywood to make a movie, and has their head collectively turned by the bright lights and glamor And of course there are dastardly deeds afoot Fortunately, Olive, who isoverlooked by the film company makes a quick recovery and saves the day Love this series.
