The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 8 - 12 Reading Age 8+. Ghosts and history whizz through this hilarious story. Luke hates most things that happen at school – and he especially hates history. When his teacher sets the class a project to do on the Victorians he knows he is not going to enjoy it! But then Luke is visited by a ghost while he is in the bath (that’s pretty embarrassing!) and he soon finds out that history isn’t boring after all…

We are huge fans here at Barrington Stoke and are delighted not only to be publishing two new titles this month, but also to celebrate Jeremy’s amazing efforts for our readers over the years with a relaunch of much-loved backlist titles. To up the fun factor, we’ve also decided to make the jackets of The Ghost in the Bath and Living with Vampires glow in the dark!”

Brand new comedy from Jeremy Strong. Luke is rather surprised to find a ghost in his bath - and she needs his help! Luke's family has a new member - The Ghost in the Bath! Can Luke help Ellie to find her fiance Charlie AND finish his history project for Mrs Trouble - sorry, Mrs Rubble - before he's really in hot water?
This book has a spooky glow-in-the-dark jacket.
