Summary

Ada Goth is the only child of Lord Goth. The two live together in the enormous Ghastly-Gorm Hall. It’s hard for her to make friends and she's rather lonely.

Then one day William and Emily Cabbage come to stay at the house, and together with a ghostly mouse called Ishmael they begin to unravel a dastardly plot.

Ada and her friends must work together to foil the evil gamekeeper, Maltravers, before it's too late!

Critic reviews

‘[W]arm, witty… delivers an original, entertaining and heart-warm tale of courage, friendship and loyalty’ LANCASHIRE EVENING POST
‘[A] cracking combination of rollicking mystery adventure and ghost story, beautifully… written with an outright humour aimed at children and a sly, literary wit aimed at parents’ DAILY MAIL

Totally gripping and quirky!

We loved this audio book! The narrating was great! And the storyline was totally gripping throughout! we lived all the action and also witnessing the grief of a sad life event, and the transformation of this grief into love.

Great story for 8 - 10 year olds

My daughter gave the story top marks because it was mysterious and had some strong characters. She really enjoyed it.
