Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Ghastly, Illinois, the news is grave, indeed. Dick Tater from the International Movement for the Safety & Protection Of Our Kids & Youth (IMSPOOKY) is concerned that 11-year-old Seymour Hope is living in the Spence Mansion "without the benefit of parents." Ignatius B. Grumply tries to explain that Seymours in a lovely living arrangement with himself and the ghost of Olive C. Spence. But Dick Tater is not convinced. He commits Grumply to the Illinois Home for the Deranged, sends Seymour to the Ghastly Orphanage, and announces his plan to exhume the body of Olive C. Spence. And just in time for Halloween! In this second volume from 43 Old Cemetery Road, the Klise sisters take readers on a riotous romp through a hilariously haunted town that, in the end, feels just like home sweet home.
