Take Kids on an Adventure With "Attack of the Shadow Smashers"

If your child loves spooky stories, but is not quite ready for Goosebumps, introduce him to The Notebook of Doom (a Branches early chapter book series). The Notebook of Doom brings newly independent readers on thrilling adventures while challenging them with new vocabulary and plenty of context clues to guide them through these creepy stories. In this third adventure, Attack of the Shadow Smashers, Alexander goes up against shadow smashers, who are wreaking havoc all over town!
