More hilarity and adventure at everyone’s favourite hotel
There’s monster-sized fun for readers to be had at the Nothing To See Here Hotel – after all, it is the world’s number one holiday destination for magical creatures. In the company of the proprietors’ son, the irrepressible Frankie Banister (who is part troll by the way), we get best seats for the action which here concerns the return of Frankie’s great-great-great-grandfather Abraham, as a ghost. You’d think great-great-great-granny Regurgita would be happy to see her husband back, but nothing goes as you’d expect in these stories, and maybe everyone should be a bit suspicious of Abraham. Adventures don’t come more extraordinary or more enjoyable than these, and any readers with a taste for fast-moving, fabulously funny illustrated tales should book in asap.
Frankie Banister and his family are preparing to celebrate Grandad Abraham's 175th birthday - an occasion that's going to be even more HONKHUMPTIOUS now that Abe's ghost has showed up! When the unexpected spook reveals a secret UNDERWATER wing of the hotel that's been hidden away for years, the Banister's decide there's only one thing for it ... a whopping welcome home bash in the spectacular BRINY BALLROOM. But memories aren't the only things waiting at the bottom of the ocean. Secrets and sea monsters are lurking in the shadows, and is everything as it seems with Grandad Abraham's ghost? Or is there something fishy going on?
Book your stay at The Nothing To See Here Hotel in this fabulously funny series by bestselling author Steven Butler, with a host of weird and wonderful characters brought to life with Steven Lenton's brilliant illustrations!
