My family discovered Eva Ibbotson last year with Journey to the River Sea, and now we are all addicts. This is one of the best and funniest. An evil, snobbish pair of cousins want to terrify the heir of Helton Hall to death by renting ghosts from a ghost agency. Fortunately,the orphaned Oliver is sent a kindly family who comfort him and help him overthrow their wicked plot.
This story is hilarious, good-hearted, completely absorbing and told with a verve that makes it perfect to read aloud or to yourself. Thoroughly recommended.

I loved this book It's about A ghost agency who finds homes for ghosts. Several days the agency is open for people who want ghosts to live with them and several days it is open for ghosts who want homes. The ghost family who it is mostly about died when a bomb was dropped on their home. It is a great book for all ages. I highly recomend it.

The idea of an agency for ghosts is a brilliant one, and the uses Ibbotson puts it to as thrilling as can be imagined. A wicked guardian plots to terrify the orphaned heir to a large gloomy castle to death, but meets with unexpected resistance when a nice ghost family is despatched instead of the ghouls he signed up for. Wonderful, entrancing story-telling, recommended for any nervous child of over 8.

Great story! I read the whole unputdownable book. No doubt, my nieces and nephews will love the book. I am going to get another book by same author, Eva Ibbotson. She is truly a gifted storyteller.

What a fab, funny and entertaining read. My daughter has listened to this numerous times and still enjoys it. The characters are creative and the plot is original with a twist towards the end.

Fantastic story but be warned quite gruesome in its ghost descriptions and needed some editing for my 8 year old.
