Mountwood School for Ghosts by Toby Ibbotson
Macmillan ISBN 9781447271000
Ghosts aren't what they used to be, according to one 473 year old teacher! So she and her spectral friends set up Mountwood School for Ghosts to promote excellence in haunting. Two young humans Daniel and Charlotte meet the likeable ghost Percy and when they realise that problems in their neighbourhood (created by humans) are seemingly insuperable they enlist the help of the phantoms of Mountwood. This is a thrilling and imaginatively-written story that will have you on the edge of your seat. It is action-packed and full of humour.
