About The Book

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!

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. 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 and I’m afraid of everything.

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.



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!
