Home alone with two ghosts and her cousin is not something Araminta Spook had in mind when her aunt and uncle headed off just before her birthday. This is a real page-turner with plenty of imaginative characters, twists and turns in the plot that are both funny and gripping and in the end Araminta finds a way to get rid of the ghosts for good.


Araminta Spook: Ghostsitters by Angie Sage

Araminta's Aunt Tabby has won a Transylvanian holiday for four so she and all the adults of Spook House are going for a much-needed break but it just so happens to be Araminta's birthday, too. So who will keep an eye on Araminta and her friend Wanda? Mathilda, Araminta's 'grown up' cousin, arrives to babysit, along with two rowdy teenage ghosts. At first, Araminta and Wanda are in heaven - staying up late, playing loud music, and ordering take aways - no more of Aunt Tabby's rules! But they soon find themselves cleaning up after everyone else; being home alone isn't turning out as they'd hoped.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
