Synopsis

Ghosts on the Loose by Tim Healey

Mortimer Keene is full to bursting with madcap plans, and if it's trouble you're after, look no further! With laugh out loud illustrations, rollicking rhymes, and short chapters perfect for new readers, this second book in the series sees Mortimer Keene and his phantom machine up to no good again! When the school is overrun with ghosts and ghouls from the past, it's up to Mortimer Keene to blast them back in time and save the school. Written by Tim Healey and illustrated by Chris Mould, this is a wickedly funny new series. Other titles include: Attack of the Slime and Alien Abduction. If you like Horrid Henry, you'll love Mortimer Keene! 'Hilarious' - The Guardian

Reviews

Humorous rhyming text is well matched with lively, amusing illustrations. Peters Gazette It is only now that one of my sons has reached the right reading stage that I realise the sheer genius of Tim Healey and Chris Mould's Mortimer Keene series. I have never seen him devour a book with so many tricky words so fast as he did... zany comic writing and elegantly ghastly pictures that are the joy. The Glasgow Herald Another visual feast full of fun... top notch ghost-busting! WRD Magazine Great for newly confident readers. The Guardian A motivating and entertaining read for emerging readers in junior school... complemented by a set of fantastic black and white drawings. School Librarian

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!

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
