The Lovereading4Kids comment

A hilariously dark tale from the self-proclaimed evil novelist Douglas Anthony Cooper reissued to coincide with the second title featuring Milrose Munce. Milrose Munce is blessed or rather cursed with the ability to see ghosts. Rather unfortunately for him most of his best friends have died in science experiments gone wrong but of course fortunately Milrose can still hangout with them. After Milrose is given detention his life takes a rather dramatic turn and he will have to face up to the horrible Den of Professional help. A great ghoulish romp.

The 2nd in this series Milrose Munce and the Plague of Toxic Fungus has just been published as a 'Kindle' version - click here to find out more. It won't be available as a 'physical book' for some time.

Synopsis

Milrose Munce by Douglas Anthony Cooper

Milrose Munce sees ghosts. His school is full of them but as far as Milrose is aware, he is the only one who knows it. Most of his best pals in fact - Cryogenic Kelvin, Deeply Damaged Dave - are dead. They were the victim of science experiments gone wrong, but have managed to maintain a sense of humor about their untimely departures.

Reviews

“Appealing to the misfit in all of us, Milrose Munce is a grand, gigglesome read.” James Lovegrove, Financial Times

“… brims with knowing and sly humour. Lively and intelligent, this is one for any ten – or eleven year old” Literary Review

“A hilariously dark tale from the self-proclaimed evil novelist… A great ghoulish romp” Lovereading
