Description

There's something strange going on at Washington Irving Elementary School. Kids are turning into monsters-literally! First it was Sebastian, then Angie. Now it's little brother Rory's turn to be "monsterized!" One minute he's a normal kid hanging out in his backyard. The next, he finds himself walking through stuff: the back porch, walls, even people! What's a ghostly kid to do? Rory decides to find some other spirits and ask them how to get "un-ghosted." So he heads up to the local haunted house to give it a try. What Rory doesn't know is that if he doesn't get the answer soon, he'll only have a ghost of a chance of ever being a kid again...
