Summary
Meet Desmond Cole! A fearless eight-year-old who runs his own ghost patrol, looking for ghosts, monsters, and mischief makers everywhere. Oh, and he just so happens to be my new best friend...and thank goodness! Because I'm afraid of everything.

Welcome to Kersville, a town with a spooky history and a collection of ghosts and spirits who are major mischief-makers. Most kids spend their days without ever seeing or dealing with a ghost, but some kids get stuck with a haunt. When that happens, they call Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol. Desmond is the hall monitor of ghosts and monsters. There's no job too spooky, icky, or risky for Desmond.

I'm not like that at all. My name's Andres Miedoso. I'm Desmond's best friend. We do everything together...including catch ghosts. Seems cool, right? There's only one problem: I'm afraid of everything.

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Miedoso casts himself as a timorous young narrator whose hopes of leading a normal-boring life are dashed immediately when the house he and his scientist parents move into proves to be haunted by a terrifying poltergeist. Fortunately, his outgoing next-door neighbor, African American Desmond, is an experienced exorcist with, it turns out, a large customer base. Unfortunately, before he gets a chance to help, Andres' parents chow down on the lasagna Desmond's mom has brought over, which turns out to be disgustingly haunted. In the midst of all this, it comes out that the ghost, named Zax, is a mischievous but friendly sort who doesn't really want to scare anyone. So Andres loses his fear (if not his aversion to slime) and ends up poised to join his new friend in further ectoplasmic encounters. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations on almost every page of Andres' large, well-leaded narrative add plenty of visual appeal to a crowd-pleasing setup episode aimed at fledgling chapter-book readers.--Peters, John Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This amusing first book in the Desmond Cole Ghost Patrol series is narrated by Andres Miedoso (the book is written pseudonymously), a nervous "normal-boring" Latino boy who moves to a new town and befriends his neighbor Desmond. Desmond runs a ghost-hunting business out of his garage, and it's a good thing: Andres's house turns out to be haunted, and he'll need Desmond's help to deal with the mysterious noises, floating furniture, and other instances of paranormal activity, including a silverware creature that manifests in the kitchen and sends Andres fleeing in terror. The large font, ample b&w illustrations, short chapters, and funny-spooky story line should make this a hit with scaredy-cats and brave readers alike. Final art not seen by PW.
