Product Description

Review

A clever blend of magic and humour, The Beasts of Clawstone Castle is an enthralling story, elegantly written. (Guardian) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

Can two children foil an outrageous criminal plot with the help of some of the funniest and maddest ghosts ever invented? Clawstone Castle is ancient and famous, but its elderly owners have no money. In its great park live a legendary herd of wild white cattle that have roamed there since the days of the Druids, and now their future is threatened. Rollo and Madlyn come to stay with their uncle and aunt and, with the help of a mysterious recluse in the castle library, they collect an impressive team of phantoms who agree to help them turn Clawstone into a tourist attraction. There’s a bloodstained bride, an aristocrat whose chest is permanently gnawed by a rat, a girl who was sawn in half in a circus, a pair of feet without a body, and more. Paying visitors soon pour through the gates. But then a terrible fate befalls the cattle, and the ghosts and the children find themselves facing some very sinister enemies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I am a mother of 3 children and I bought this for a family holiday. We all loved the story and were completedly engaged from the beginning. It was gruesome and graffic but not so much that it scared any of the children. We also love David Tennants audiobook skills which gave it that extra special touch. We will definately be buying more Eva Ibbotson audiobooks.

This is a very entertaining story beautifully read by David Tennant. There are parts that may be a bit scary for young listeners, but on the whole it makes good listening for all the family. As an adult I enjoyed it. David Tennants interpretation of character voices is, as uusual excellent.

As always, Eva Ibbotson has come up with a complete winner, with captivating characters, loathsome villains and a real facility to blend the realistic and plausible with complete fantasy. Her beautifully matter-of-fact tone and lively dialogue perfectly conveys the reader to her world, a world where it is never disguised that there is wickedness but where it is also suggested that intelligence, determination and decency will overcome evil.

The beasts of Clawstone Castle is really unusual. A mixture of adventure and ghostliness it is beautifully written and made me smile.I enjoyed the characters and found the difficulties that the casle is in very believable.Definitely not talking down to children and very readable for adults too.
