    • The Graves Family is a Patricia Polacco book unlike many of her other texts This mystery text was a great read for my 5th graders around Halloween town I would definitely recommend this text for 3 5 teachers to read Though it is not a Halloween book, the haunted house element made it definitely spooky and fun to get in the Halloween mood It is a funny and quirky text about a family that is new to the neighborhood and very different than their neighbors, yet still desires to fit in I used this te [...]

    • Patricia Polacco writes this book as a way to provide a fictional background to the haunted house she created and stars in every year as her own character Mrs Graves When the graves family comes to Union City, none of the townspeople are willing to try to befriend them due to their strange ways until Seth and Sara visit Ronnie, the son of Mr and Mrs Graves As they get to know him and his family, they realize that although the family is very odd and at times a bit spooky, all they really are is a [...]

    • This is a fun story that introduces us to the Graves Family an odd bunch of characters reminiscent of Chas Addams Charles Addams and his famous odd family, The Addams Family Although it is the same length as the sequel, The Graves Family Goes Camping, it seems longer, and I know we liked the sequel a bit Overall, though, it is an interesting and fun story with some very strange and creepy characters Though not specifically about Halloween, it would be a great time to read this book.

    • This is a cute fiction picture book that shows that even the scariest or toughest people still want to fit in or have people to care about them This family moved into town, and were very strange Their house was filled with spiders, bats, and Venus fly traps The father was a scientist, and the mother made all plants die and wither, and cooked with extremely strange ingredients However, in the end, they just wanted to have friends like everyone else.

    • The Graves Family have many traits in common with the Addam s Family, they re creep, kooky and all the rest The only difference is the Graves family has yet again relocated to find a new town they can fit This quirky story was too long in picture book format, small chapter book would have worked much better Keep up weird Graves family People can love you or leave you but the message of staying true to who you are is forever.

    • This is a really great book to launch a Science or Writing lesson, the story introduces many different types of plants, animals, insects and the process of experimentation Also, for writing the students could try to make their own recipe and draw a picture of one of the mother s kooky dishes at dinner This is a great story about acceptance and learning that everyone has a their own unique qualities.

    • I have read many of Patricia Polacco s books and have never been disappointed In this book the Graves family moves to Union village They are different t from the other people in the village and they are outcasts of a sort until the children from across the street come to play Interesting story about appreciating the differences in people Definitely for Halloween.

    • We really enjoy Patricia Polacco s work, but did not love this one Other reviewers have said that 4th graders enjoy this book and perhaps that had something to do with it My first grader got somewhat bored with it and didn t find it very funny I felt it lacked the depth that Polacco s other works show So take my rating with a grain of salt, it might be much better for a different audience.

    • This book is funny and interesting and holds a lot of surprises that children would find funny The book can be a bit lengthy but it is worth it As a read aloud this would be a good book to inspire kids to write their own creepy story or tell about a time this made them think of The illustrations bring the text to life This is a very enjoyable book.

    • We didn t really care for this book was long and kind of boring My daughter didn t even want to finish it Maybe it would have been better as a read on your own book rather then a read out loud book There were good ideas in it.but it just didn t really interest me or my daughter.

    • Is it okay that I rated a Polacco book okay Somehow I feel that I am letting my old friend down Then again, she let me down on this fluffy, too juvenile even though it s a picture book book There, I said it Let the rotten tomatoes fly.

    • Patricia Polacco does a nice job of showing how all families and homes can have something to offer even if those things are different from what others may expect or value A funny picture book that would be especially appropriate around Halloween.

    • This book was hilarious A fun read for me and the children, with captivating pictures that fit the style of writing very nicely I like it especially because the underlying theme is one of acceptance even if someone seems strange to begin with, and I can sympathize with that message all day long

    • I just discovered this author I checked out a bunch of her books from the library They have great illustrations, and the words are not dumbed down for a picture book A great way to expand vocab as you read to your kids.

    • Patricia Polacco has wonderful books What imagination of a small town eccentric family I love it A creative family that thinks outside of the norm this is a cool book.
