Bestselling novelist and picture book author Funke now reaches a brand-new audience with a silly, spooky series of illustrated paperback originals for ages 7 to 10. Among her top sellers in Germany!

Nine-year-old Tom Tomsky can't catch a break: He's a klutz, his sister Lola pretty much hates his guts, 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 ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost) in the basement but the IRG (Incredibly Revolting Ghost) in town. All while keeping the nettlesome Lola off his trail....

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.
