Mountwood School for GhostsHalloween UKS2, Eva Ibbotson
‘The ghosts of today have gone soft,’ declared the 473-year-old teacher. ‘I haven’t heard of a single person who has been frightened to death in years.’
At top-secret Mountwood School for Ghosts the magical staff instruct their students in the highest levels of haunting. Although the Stinking Druid, the Legless Warrior and Vera the Banshee try very hard to be terrifying, they’re just too riddled with fears of their own to be properly scary.
Then two human children arrive seeking their help. Daniel and Charlotte have powerful enemies – but can the bunch of misfit phantoms at Mountwood School scare them away, or will they just make things much, much worse …?
Mountwood School for Ghosts is a funny ghost story from Toby Ibbotson, son of award-winning author Eva Ibbotson, based on an idea conceived by Eva Ibbotson, with a cover by Alex T. Smith.
