My Family and Other Ghosts

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Scholastic

Twins Ivy and Ash find themselves the proprietors of a haunted hotel, Grave Grange, their ancestral home. But the hotel is less than successful: Grandpa Digby is missing, their dad is serving "experimental" meals like eyeballs, and Grave Grange has no paying guests.

Ash is unsettled in their new home too, fearful of the poltergeist and the Headless Huntsman. The first guests, Mr and Mrs Jones, are so disgusted with the hotel that they leave a minus five-star review on stay-well-away.com.

With Grave Grange's future at risk, Ivy banishes the ghosts to attract more guests. However, when the new guests reveal they wanted a haunted holiday, Ash and Ivy must search high and low in Darkmoor to urge the ghosts to return.

With nail-biting excitement as well as laugh-out-loud moments, children will be queuing up to check in to Grave Grange. This spooky story is lots of fun, but is ultimately about family and friends and overcoming fears: children will race through it, enjoying the adventure all the way.
