A delightfully exciting and witty adventure that interweaves elements of history - Sir Walter Raleigh comes into the present as a ghost and wreaks havoc and fun with a family! - into a fun and gripping story which children will love.

My Friend Walter by Michael Morpurgo
Sir Walter Raleigh laid his cloak in a puddle for Queen Elizabeth I to walk across. Now, Bess meets his ghost and finds out he's her ancestor! How's she going to explain him to her family, especially when he breaks her brother's fishing rod, steals a horse and smokes cigars in her room? Will Sir Walter wreak havoc or save her family's home?
