A revolting breakfast cereal figures prominently in Ghost, as saucy narrator Agatha and her friends try to discover if a ghost is haunting their school. In Mud, Agatha's scheme to help a friend rejoin the soccer team becomes much more complicated than she planned. These light, fast-moving stories from the UK, profusely illustrated with comical black-and-white drawings, will attract fans of broad humor. [Review covers the following titles: Agatha Parrot and the Heart of Mud and Agatha Parrot and the Odd Street School Guest.] Copyright 2017 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Originally published in the U.K. in 2014 and newly illustrated by Hargis, this series kickoff introduces Agatha Parrot, who has a personality as exuberant as her fuzzy nest of hair. Along with her closest friends, Agatha attempts to figure out why the bell atop their school is clanging too many times. Nervous Ellie is certain that a ghost is responsible—and then one is spotted. The jittery, Ed Koren–esque energy of Hargis's black-and-white artwork dovetails nicely with Agatha's chatty, irreverent narration (of the school's strict vice principal, "She's got glasses like TV screens, and she wears hairy clothes, and she thinks everything in the world is unsafe"), as well as the lightly spooky ghost talk, pranking, and other shenanigans that populate the story. Ages 7–10. Illustrator's agent: Jennifer Rofé, Andrea Brown Literary. (July)
