Product Description

What would you do if you saw a ghost? If you’d scream, you’re in the wrong place. Madlyn and Rollo are on the lookout for some really scary ghosts to help them save their new home. Clawstone Castle needs urgent repairs. But Madlyn and Rollo have a really cool fundraising idea: they’ll turn the tumbledown castle into a genuine haunted house. So they put together a crack team of phantoms, including a one-eyed skeleton and Brenda the Bloodstained Bride. Soon the visitors are rolling in. Trouble is, a sinister scientist might just ruin their whole plan…

  • A glorious ghostly romp from the legendary Eva Ibbotson
  • Witty, grotesque, anarchic and full of humour and heart
  • Eva won the Smarties Prize for Journey to the River Sea
  • Her other books included The Secret of Platform 13

Eva Ibbotson is the award-winning author of many books for children and adults. She has a daughter and three sons, who showed her that children like to read about ghosts, wizards, and witches “because they are just like people but madder and more interesting.”

She was born in Vienna, in Austria, but moved to England with her family when the Nazis came to power. After training to be a physiologist which she didn’t enjoy because she didn’t like doing experiments on animals, Eva got married and had four very nice children.

Her first children’s book, The Great Ghost Rescue was published in 1975, and she is best known for titles like Journey to the River Sea and The Dragonfly Pool. Eva died in 2010, aged 85.
