Friday, 22 August 2014
GENRE: MG/Supernatural
PAGES: 272
PUBLISHER: Macmillan
FORMAT: Hardback
BUY IT: Waterstones
RATING: 4 Stars

Fredegonda, Goneril, and Drusilla are Great Hagges, much more important and much rarer than regular old hags. They think that ghosts these days are decidedly lacking and that people haven't been scared of ghosts for years. So one day they decide that something needs to change - it's time for these ghosts to learn a thing or two about being scary. And what better way to teach them than to set up their very own school for ghosts?

A wonderful book that combines mystery, mayhem and ghosts! A trio of terrifying hagges decide to set up a school for ghosts to train them in all things ghastly, and they become embroiled in the life of Daniel and Charlotte as they try and save their homes. It's funny, clever and brilliantly written, the descriptions are so vivid I could see exactly what was being described. Perfect for 7-12 year olds.

- Gem.
