The Great Ghost Rescue
Illustrated by Alex T. SmithAges 7 to 11
With a beautiful cover illustration by Alex T. Smith, creator of the Claude series, The Great Ghost Rescue is a wonderfully spooky young fiction title from the award-winning author of Journey to the River Sea, Eva Ibbotson.
'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.
Eva Ibbotson weaves a magic like no other. Once enchanted, always enchanted.
