The Lovereading4Kids comment

Halibut Hall comes alive after midnight as Alex and his grandpa set about spooking the guests. But it’s boring being a ghost in the same place for 150 years. Winning a surprise holiday at the Moonbalm Hotel is exactly the break Alex and grandpa need. It turns out to be a holiday of a lifetime as Alex uncovers a sinister plot to steal the Moonbalm treasure while grandpa embarks on a love affair! Terrific action and lots of spooky jokes make this an adventure mystery to remember.

Synopsis

Ghostboy and the Moonbalm Treasure by Richard Hamilton

Alex and his grandfather are ghosts. They've been dead for over 150 years. And they've been haunting Halibut Hall for just as long. Not much happens at Halibut Hall. So when they win a holiday to stay at Moonbalm Hotel - occupied half by the living and half by the dead - for the first time in years they are, well, dumbfounded.
