The Wilkinson family became ghosts when a bomb dropped on their house in 1943–and they badly want a new home. But there is a horrible mix-up at the agency that specialises in matching ghosts to suitable homes. They are sent to Fulton Hall, where the ghastly Fulton and Frieda Snodde-Britte need a ghost that will frighten their nephew Oliver to death...
A crazy, hilarious adventure filled with eccentric spirits and even more bizarre human characters.
