Ghost Club 1: The New Kid

Deborah Abela

A slightly spooky but mostly funny series about the mischief ghosts can make - and the kids who take care of the mess. Angeline and Edgar might be kids, but they’re also two of Ghost Club’s youngest ghost-catchers. Got a problem with a ghost, poltergeist or ghoul? Can’t sleep because of all the rattling chains and cackling laughter? Angeline and Edgar are the experts to call. So it’s entirely logical that when new kid Dylan joins Ghost Club, Angeline and Edgar are the perfect candidates to introduce him to everything he needs to know, from which ghost-catching gadget will do the trick to when to run like crazy to avoid being splattered with ectoplasm. The trouble is, Dylan’s not quite sure he wants to be a ghost-catcher …

Review

Ghosts can be quite the problem for those not used to dealing with them, especially when they show up throwing ectoplasm and knocking over priceless vases. Luckily, the Ghost Club are here to deal with pesky poltergeists, gruesome ghouls and any other paranormal pests. Twins Angeline and Edgar are Ghost Club’s youngest members, until new recruit Dylan shows up. As the grandson of Ghost Club’s Grandmaster, big things are expected of Dylan, but he’s having a hard time taking up the mantle of ghost-catcher. Even with Edgar and Angeline showing him the ropes, Dylan’s not so sure he’s cut out for this business. Can he overcome his biggest fear?

Any young readers who might feel the same way about ghosts as Dylan needn’t be afraid to pick up Ghost Club – this book is definitely more funny than scary! An immensely enjoyable adventure for readers eight and up that won’t give them nightmares.
