From the Publisher:

It all began during a stormy coach ride, when Touch, an orphan boy, was traveling to meet his evil great-uncle, Judge Wigglesforth. That's when Touch first sees The Great Chaffalo, a magician's ghost.

From the moment Touch meets his nasty great-uncle he has troubles. Not only is the judge trying to cheat Touch out of his inheritance, he's also trying to force Sally Hoskins to sell him her Red Raven Inn. Is Touch all alone against the powerful judge? How can he get what belongs to him in the first place?

Where is The Great Chaffalo now?
