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 . . .

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
