Desmond and Andres battle beach bullies who also happen to be creepy monsters in the third book of the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol chapter book series!
When you go to the beach with Desmond Cole, it isn’t all sand, surf, and sun. It’s more like, ghosts, ghouls, and gloom. And yes, being haunted while there’s sand in your swimsuit is annoying, but at least you can always count on one thing—beach life is never boring with Mersurfers around.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.
Surf’s Up, Creepy Stuff! CHAPTER ONE A DAY AT THE BEACH
When people say something is “a day at the beach,” they usually mean it was easy. Not me.
When I think about a day at the beach, I think about the hot sun burning the top of my head until I’m melting like a Popsicle.
I think about the sand burning the bottoms of my bare feet until I’m hopping around like a bunny. And I think about how sand gets everywhere: in my hair, in my shorts, even in my mouth. It’s so gross!
Andres Miedoso is still afraid of everything as a grown-up, even after all his adventures with Desmond Cole. He lives in New York City with his family, and he remains best friends with Desmond but returns to Kersville only when he’s needed.
