Roosevelt Banks and the Attic of Doom

Illustrated By: 
Total Words: 

With a new sister on the way, Roosevelt Banks is expected to give up his bedroom and move into the attic, which must be haunted because of all the squeaks and groans coming from the spooky place at the top of the stairs. After his plan to move into a fort in the woods fails, and a ghost-busting exercise goes terribly wrong, Roosevelt—with the help of Tommy, Josh, and Eddie Spaghetti—has to find the courage to defeat the biggest, spookiest ghouls ever and turn the Attic of Doom into a Room with a View.

What Reviewers are saying:

An often silly, sometimes sweet read; many kids will recognize themselves in Roosevelt's big imagination and will enjoy spending the summer in his insular, intimate neighborhood universe. --School Library Journal

This book is a delight, we enjoyed it enormously. Just scary enough to produce giggles but not too scary for a bedtime story. -- NetGalley Reviewer

"Roosevelt Banks and the Attic of Doom follows Roosevelt Banks and his band of brothers as they take on the arduous task of turning "The Attic of Doom" into "The Attic of Dudes. The book is well written. The illustrations by Debbie Palen make it all the more up a child's alley. I highly recommend this book to middle-graders."
