Children love to read spooky mystery stories and this one is particularly good fun and exciting.

Synopsis

On The Ghost Trail by Chris Powling

Grandpa's creaky old house is the perfect place for ghosts, or so Kevin teases his younger siblings when they go to stay there. He shows Mick and Susie the evidence... This is a spooky mystery story with a surprising hero.

Reviews

'A lively, well-written tale which avoids being too cliched.'
