Product Description

The Wilkinson family, who became ghosts when a bomb dropped on their house in 1943, badly need a new home. But there is a horrible mix-up at the agency that specialises in matching ghosts to suitable homes! Before they know it, they are sent to Fulton Hall, where the ghastly Fulton and Frieda Snodde-Brittle have asked for a ghost that will frighten their nephew Oliver to death… A crazy, hilarious tale of spooks on the loose from the late, great Eva Ibbotson.

  • 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

“You’ll love this chain-rattlingly, blood-oozingly hilarious story.” Daily Telegraph

Eva Ibbotson

129503 eva ibbotson 1 305842

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.
