NB: Since this is the third in the series, this review may contain spoilers for books one and two.

This is the first Kitty Slade book I've read. It will not be the last. Do you need to know more? :) Just in case you do...

By this, the third book in the series, Kitty is fairly comfortable with her ability to see ghosts (known as phantorama in the story), but she is quite surprised to see a whole ghost ship. This story takes place in Cornwall and is steeped in the lore of shipwrecks and pirates associated with the area. I like that the family live in a camper van (known as The Hippo), which gives Dunbar more flexibility with settings and additional characters. They are certainly a quirky family, and Kitty's abilities (and the issue of who knows and who doesn't - it's inherited from her late Mum so can't be a complete secret) make for some interesting family relationships.

The story is narrated by Kitty, so we get to enjoy her individual point of view and entertaining voice. She appears confident and sassy, but her narration allows us to see some less confident feelings and to sympathise with her. Some sections are presented as Kitty's blog, which she maintains privately like a diary to set out and explore her feelings. I also enjoyed her interaction with other characters, including her quirky-bordering-on-weird Grandmother Maro and her cousin Ashley, who lives a much more normal teen life including a cute crush.

Although there are scary moments, this is not a creepy ghost story - more like junior urban fantasy than horror. The lively voice and the confidence of the children in their investigations ensures that it is on the lighter side and would be unlikely to terrify any delicate souls.

Overall, I really enjoyed this and would definitely recommend it (and the series).

My daughter has loved the first books and is delighted to complete the series. Keeps her occupied for ages and great that it is a book rather than on the computer.

I'm not sure who enjoys this more, me or my childre (aged 11 & 9, girl and boy). Kitty is a great lead character, not frou-frou or princessy whatsoever which is great if you have a girl who is more of a tomboy and prefers a little spark in her characters. The storylines are good, lots to discuss and anticipate and work out what's happening. I highly recommend this entire set of books, although I think this one in particular is my favourite.
