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!

‘[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

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.
