Frightfully Friendly Ghosties

Publisher: Quercus

When Pamela Fraidy gets locked in the attic with a big, leggy spider by a mean still-alive, her ghostie friends have to call on all their ingenuity to set her free.

To prevent such incidents happening in the future, the ghosties decide the only course of action is to become pals with the still-alives but for some reason, all their overtures at friendship are met with wailing, shrieking and rapid retreats to securely locked cupboards.

An amusing ghost's-eye-view of the world provides plenty of humorous material for this first chapter book, which will appeal to newly fluent readers who like the idea of ghosts but don't particularly want to be scared!
