More About the Author

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends. The Spook's Apprentice, The Spook's Curse and The Spook's Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children's Book for the Year Award. The Spook's Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award.

4.0 out of 5 stars good introduction 21 Jan 2012

I have read The Spook's Apprentice so had some idea of what to expect from this book. I wasn't disappointed - it is a great short stand alone story, but also a good introduction to the next book in the series.
As a free book it's a must have, but the story is a bit scary so I would recommend it for age 14+

A great little short story which was my first exposure to Delaney's writing and the entire Grimalkin's story. This is short but action packed and definitely leaves you wanting more.
