Mountwood School for Ghosts
Illustrated by Alex T. Smith
Fredegonda, Goneril, and Drusilla are Great Hagges, much more important and much rarer than regular old hags. They think that ghosts these days are decidedly lacking and that people haven't been scared of ghosts for years. So one day they decide that something needs to change - it's time for these ghosts to learn a thing or two about being scary. And what better way to teach them than to set up their very own school for ghosts?
Mountwood School for Ghosts is a funny ghost story from Toby Ibbotson, son of award-winning author Eva Ibbotson, based on an idea conceived by Eva Ibbotson, with a cover by Alex T. Smith. Now in paperback.
Toby Ibbotson is the eldest son of award-winning author Eva Ibbotson, whose novel, The Abominables, he edited with her first publisher, Marion Lloyd, after his mother's death. Mountwood School for Ghosts is his debut novel, and is based on an idea conceived with Eva, and planned out in detail by the two of them before her death. Containing all the warmth, humour and spark of Eva's novels for younger readers, Mountwood School for Ghosts marks Toby out as an exciting new storytelling talent in the children's book world. He lives in Sweden with his family and writes whenever he can.
