The Beasts of Clawstone Castle

What would you do if you saw a ghost? If you’d scream, you’re in the wrong place. Madlyn and Rollo are on the lookout for some really scary ghosts to help them save their new home. Clawstone Castle needs urgent repairs. But Madlyn and Rollo have a really cool fundraising idea: they’ll turn the tumbledown castle into a genuine haunted house. So they put together a crack team of phantoms, including a one-eyed skeleton and Brenda the Bloodstained Bride. Soon the visitors are rolling in. Trouble is, a sinister scientist might just ruin their whole plan…

  • A glorious ghostly romp from the legendary Eva Ibbotson
  • Witty, grotesque, anarchic and full of humour and heart
  • Eva won the Smarties Prize for Journey to the River Sea
  • Her other books included The Secret of Platform 13
