Product Description

Let Dr Doom take you on a journey into a sinister world of stories, in which spirited spooks get up to all sorts of mischief! A boy takes refuge in a crumbling castle and gets the shock of a lifetime. An empty suit of armour goes out for a walk and gives people a nasty turn. Spooks from the ghost train have a wonderful ride on the dodgem cars while the fairground is closed. And finally, a respectable bogey family are upset when some uncouth trolls move in next door! Told in rollicking rhymes full of spooky chuckles, Kaye Umansky’s wonderful stories are now brought together in one book with delicious drawings and an introduction from the author.

“These four hilarious stories are written in a catchy style that’s just right for beginner readers to tackle on their own.” Rossendale Free Press

“Material for young entertainers to relish with rollicking rhymes abounding.” School Librarian
