Product description

They slowed as they reached the gate; two stone columns, each with its own crumbling angel perched on top. The angels held up a rusty, wrought-iron arch that read, in curling, serpentine letters: SHIVERTON HALL.

Arthur Bannister has been unexpectedly accepted into Shiverton Hall – an incredibly spooky school. And it’s just as well that it has made its offer, because Arthur had a horrible time at his previous school, and was desperate to leave. Timely indeed… But Arthur has no time to worry about this strange coincidence. He’s too busy trying to make head or tail of Shiverton Hall, dogged by tales of curses and bad fortune. And not all the faces there are friendly. There are the bullying Forge triplets, for starters, and the nasty headmistress with her acid tongue. Luckily, Arthur also has new friends to cheer him up. But mysteries remain: what secrets does this weird school hide? Who picks the pupils? And why is Arthur there?

    Shiverton Hall Review

    This book was seriously amazing, once I started I just didn't want to put it down. I reread it every day, and it is just as exciting each time as the first time. There are some scary moments as well as some seriously funny moments, and it is a very enjoyable read. I think some of the ghost stories in it might be a bit too scary for younger readers, but older readers will love them. It was my favourite book ever straight away.
