The Great Ghost Rescue

Eva Ibbotson Alex T. Smith

About the book

'Nobody knew what had gone wrong with Humphrey. Perhaps it was his ectoplasm . . .'

Humphrey the Horrible sounds scary, but he's actually a very friendly skeleton, with twinkling eye sockets and jangling finger bones. Humphrey dreams of being ghastly, like his brother - a screaming skull - or terrifying, like his bloodsucking vampire-bat cousins. But when Humphrey discovers an evil plot to exorcise his family he finally realizes you don't have to be spine-chillingly fearsome to be a hero.

The Great Ghost Race is a wonderfully spooky young-fiction title from the award-winning author of Journey to the River Sea, Eva Ibbotson.

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