Dare you enter the Haunted House? In a big old house at the edge of town there's a spooky surprise in store . . . But who's afraid of a few ghosts? Certainly not the heroine of this story who is an engaging and inventive little girl with real girl power. In fact she’s the sort of girl that little girls look up to. With a highly original artwork style that's perfect for Halloween, this quirky and very funny story marks the debut of a genuinely original new talent in picture books. Available in both hardback and this paperback.

Synopsis
