Overview

'We need proper ghosts,' said Ned, 'really scary ones with heads that come off and daggers in their chests!' When Madlyn and her younger brother Rollo arrive at crumbling Clawstone Castle, they can see that emergency action is needed before Clawstone falls down completely. With the help of a team of homeless, scary ghosts -- including a one-eyed skeleton and Brenda the Bloodstained Bride -- they hatch a spooky plan to get the money rolling in. But with a sinister scientist on the loose, money might not be enough to save the mysterious beasts of Clawstone Castle ...

Author

Eva Ibbotson writes for both adults and children. Born in Vienna, she now lives in the north of England. Her husband was a naturalist who taught her to value even the smallest and most unattractive animal -- and her four children and seven grandchildren showed her that ghosts, wizards and witches are people like ourselves 'only madder and more interesting'. She has written eight other ghostly adventures for children.
