Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Reluctant readers and fans of the Wimpy Kid series and its ilk will appreciate the book's dynamic type, graphics galore, cartoonish illustrations, and ironic footnotes." --Kirkus <br> <br> Don't call him scaredy-cat Sam, because Sam Wu IS NOT AFRAID of ghosts! Except . . . he totally is. Can he conquer his fear by facing the ghost that lives in the walls of his house? <br> <br> After an unfortunate (and very embarrassing) incident in the Space Museum, Sam goes on a mission to prove to the school bully, and all his friends, that he's not afraid of anything--just like the heroes on his favorite show, Space Blasters . And when it looks like his house is haunted, Sam gets the chance to prove how brave he can be. A funny, touching, and charming story of ghost hunting, escaped pet snakes, and cats with attitude!

After an embarrassing incident on his school field trip, Sam is determined to prove that he is not afraid of ghosts.

Horn Book Review

Sam Wu is out to prove he's brave like his TV heroes on Space Blasters. He even gets a pet snake (though Fang is pretty scary...). But, hopefully, ridding his home of a ghost should make everyone forget the unfortunate (pants-peeing) "incident" for good. This well-written story about courage and maturation weaves in details about growing up in a multi-generational Chinese family and is illustrated with bold, expressive cartoons. (c) Copyright 2019.
