The Haunting of Hiram
by Eva Ibbotson, Alex T. Smith (Illustrator)
Twelve year old orphan, Alex MacBuff, doesn’t want to sell his beloved home, Carra Castle. But it is falling to pieces and he can’t afford to keep it. American millionaire, Hiram C. Hopgood, offers to buy it on condition that there are no ghosts-and Alex can’t refuse. Problem is, Carra Castle is full of ghosts! There’s Krok the hairy Viking warrior, mad Miss Spinks, a vampire with no teeth and a hell-hound called Cyril. Will Alex be able to stop them haunting Hiram?
A barmy, brilliantly funny, supernatural adventure from the ever-popular Eva Ibbotson.
