Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall)
For children ready for chapter books, this slightly spooky first series adventure involves a personified school that gobbles up kids. Sam, hall monitor hero, gradually figures out what's going on and what to do to save the day. Playground quicksand and a peanut butter explosion ("KA-BOOM!!!") are examples of the noisy, rollicking action enlivened in plentiful shadowy black-and-white illustrations.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2014 May)

Gr 1–3—Sam is Eerie Elementary's newest (and only) hall monitor. He figures it will be a boring job and probably one that earns him enemies. He doesn't count on the school itself being enemy number one. After nearly being swallowed by quicksand and then attacked by a fire hose, Sam is ready to find answers. Could the school be alive? Are all the students in danger, or is it just Sam the school wants? When a play draws all of Eerie Elementary together in one location, the school makes its move. The counterattack is up to Sam. Illustrations are done in a fuzzy outline style that makes them appear not quite solid. While they fit the spooky theme, a few of them are hazy enough to be slightly distracting. That small quibble aside, the text and art are a good match. Give this early chapter book to readers who want something scary but aren't ready for the "Goosebumps" or "Scream Street" series.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA
