Night School by Isobelle Carmody

A group of children spend the night in a big old school and go on a chilling journey of self-discovery when they decide to play a game. They must travel from room to room, picking up a lantern and writing down their names to ward off the dark. But the old school holds a secret that they must confront if they are to succeed in their journey...(from the publisher).
The illustrations in this book set the tone for something that guarantees eeriness. The children enter the school at night and come out the next morning having played a 'night war' trying to beat the shadows. A different sort of book for junior children.
Rating - I give this 3/5
Not bad!
Get this from the library
