Lord and Lady Spiffing want lots of ghosts – to bring in the tourists at Spiffing Castle. Oli wants just one ghost – to win a bet with his sister. Skipjack doesn’t want any ghosts – but thanks to the Spookoscope, he’s got one. If the ghosts aren’t sorted by sundown, there’ll be trouble!
‘Ceci Jenkinson is determinedly writing for the 7-12 market and doing so awesomely… sharp, funny dialogue… [It is] not only perfect and thoroughly enjoyable for children, but for any parent or teacher who may be required to read it aloud… funny and engaging… a very enthusiastic two thumbs up and a vehement recommendation. Ghosts have never been more entertaining, or more guaranteed to leave children nightmare-free and laughing loudly.’ The Bookbag
‘A marvellously funny book. An array of weird and wacky characters – complete with weird and wacky gadgets – make this a great book that both boys and girls will absolutely love.’ Waterstone’s Books Quarterly
‘A wonderfully funny book stuffed full of ghosts and eccentric characters and with a galloping plot that leads to a hilarious and original conclusion. I recommend this to everyone over 8 and there’s also loads to enjoy for adults reading it to 6-7 year olds.’ Rebecca Burton-Brown
‘It will appeal to anyone who loved Horrid Henry’ The Observer
