Summary

When Ellie and her family move into Inchwood Manor, Ellie quickly discovers strange things are happening. Who is the mysterious boy at the window? What secrets lie within the abandoned nursery? Who is the woman who haunts Ellie’s dreams - and why has she returned to the Manor, after more than a century? Ellie finds herself entangled in a Victorian mystery of ghosts and tunnels and secret documents - and discovers that life all those years ago isn’t so different from the world she knows today...Rob Keeley’s first novel for children brings out all the ingredients of the classic ghost story within a recognizable modern world setting.

Listeners of his short story collections for children will find in Childish Spirits the elements which made his past books such a success - strong and contemporary characters, inventive twists on traditional themes, and a winning combination of action, suspense, and humor.

Great story

This is the first book of Rob's I have listened to and I must say it was a great listen.
The story follows a young girl and her family as they move into an old mansion to renovate it for a charity, but the house is haunted by a young victorian boy and they must work together to stop him being sent away to the after life fully.

I really liked how the story was written and it kept me hooked throughout as I wasn't sure who they could trust and what would happen at the end
