The Lovereading4Kids comment
Eva Ibbotson is one of those rare authors that really delivers believable and utterly captivating characters. Her setting is a castle that is quite fantastical, with some incredibly funny ghosts. And yet readers are drawn in in such a way as to make them feel completely at home and part of the interplay between good and evil. A rollercoaster of a read.
***Eva's son, Toby Ibbotson, is now continuing the tradition of storytelling with his debut novel Mountwood School for Ghosts which is based on an original idea by Eva Ibbotson.
The Beasts of Clawstone Castle by Eva Ibbotson
'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 ...
A clever blend of magic and humour, The Beasts of Clawstone Castle is an enthralling story, elegantly written. Guardian
