Ghost Club 1: The New Kid




A slightly spooky but mostly funny series about the mischief ghosts can make - and the kids who take care of the mess.

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 . . .

About the author

Deborah Abela

After training as a teacher, Deb travelled to Africa where she was harassed by monkeys, caught in a desert sandstorm and thrown in jail . . . twice! She’s worked as a child wrangler and a rides operator at Luna Park, but her first real job was as writer/producer of a national children’s TV show at Network TEN. She has since become an internationally published and awarded author of 28 books including her cranky climate change trilogy, Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm. Her family’s survival in WW2 and migration to Australia inspired Teresa A New Australian. TheStupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and The Most Marvellous Spelling Bee Mystery were inspired by her fantabulous Grade 4 teacher, Ms Gray. She’s also written picture books: Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero and the 2021 CBCA Notable, Bear in Space. The Book of Wondrous Possibilities is her love letter to books, booksellers, librarians and readers. Deb’s won awards for her work but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters. She’s a proud ambassador for the charities, Room to Read and Books in Homes. www.deborahabela.com

Praise for Ghost Club 1: The New Kid

A spook-tacular read!

Total Girl

Abela's wonderfully idiosyncratic characters light up the pages in this ghostly romp that never becomes too serious or scary. The first instalment in a brilliant new series that is the perfect mix of funny and clever, quirky and cute.

Aleesah Darlison, Sun Herald

Humorous, at times spooky, mystery, with clever, likeable protagonists and a premise that will keep readers entertained.

Clare Hingston, Magpies
