Product description

The ghosts of Craggyford Castle have been living there happily for five hundred years. But outside, the world is changing. Their old haunts are under threat. And when resident ghost Humphrey the Horrible uncovers an evil plot to exorcise his family from the castle, he knows he must do something! Humphrey the Horrible might sound scary, but he’s actually a very friendly skeleton, with twinkling eye sockets and jangling finger bones. He dreams of being ghastly, like his brother – a screaming skull – or his blood-sucking vampire bat cousins. But as Humphrey launches his great ghost rescue, he finally realises that you don’t have to be spine-chillingly fearsome to be a hero!

“Eva Ibbotson weaves a magic like no other. Once enchanted, always enchanted.” Michael Morpurgo
