Bestselling novelist and picture book author Funke now reaches a brand-new audience with a silly, spooky, illustrated series for early readers. Among her top sellers in Germany!

Nine-year-old Tom can't catch a break: He's a klutz, his sister Lola pretty much hates his guts, and--and this is a BIG "and"--he just found a ghost camping out in his cellar. Lucky for Tom his grandma's best friend just happens to be the world's foremost ghosthunter. Under her expert tutelage, Tom learns the tools of the trade--which just happen to include buckets of graveyard dirt--and soon finds he has to face down not just the Averagely Spooky Ghost (ASG) in his basement but the Incredibly Revolting Ghost (IRG) in town. All while keeping the nettlesome Lola off his trail....

About the Author:

CORNELIA FUNKE is one of today's most beloved writers of magical stories for children. She is the author of The Thief Lord, Dragon Rider, Inkheart, Inkspell, the Ghosthunters series, When Santa Fell to Earth, and Igraine the Brave. She lives with her family in Los Angeles, California, in a house full of books.

From AudioFile:

How to get rid of a ghost? That's Tom's problem, if he wants to survive his trips to the dark, gloomy cellar AND his smirking sister, Lola. The former question he answers with the help of ghost hunter extraordinaire Hetty Hissup--the latter he resolves with the help of his new friend, Hugo, an ASG (averagely spooky ghost). John Beach's reading is somewhat tongue in cheek, with exaggerated yet fun voices for timid Hugo, no-nonsense Hetty, and the mean, gravelly voiced IRG (incredibly revolting ghost). Beach builds the suspense in every chapter, and his whines, moans, and howls will delight children who like to be scared, but not too scared.
