5.0 out of 5 stars A scarily good read.
Cornelia Funke is one of my favourite international children's authors...EVER! I have yet to read a book by this author that I haven't loved and Ghost Knight will sat happily on my book shelf next to the author's other books which I have loved.
This book is an excellent ghost story written for the 9 to 12 age bracket, set in the stunning surroundings of Salisbury;...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good transition book
To start with the practical aspects, the book is just over 300 pages, but the text is quite large. The chapters average at around 10 pages, and there are line drawings at various places throughout. There is some threat from the ghosts, but it's not particularly scary or gory. I would expect this to be a good transition book, for those moving from illustrated children's...

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My eleven year old daughter took this book to school to read for her English class. She said it was a good story, it took her a while to get through it so it obviously wasn't one of her favourites, but she seemed to enjoy it enough to read it to the end. She has read quite a few of Cornelian Funke's books, but usually the ones for younger readers which she really enjoyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Knight, 31 Dec 2012

This review is from: Ghost Knight (Hardcover)
Eleven year old John Whitcroft is sent to boarding school in Salisbury to sort out a fraught domestic situation - he and his mother's new boy-friend do not get on - but finds he has walked into something much worse. A group of exceptionally nasty ghosts, led by Lord Stourton are waiting to kill him because he is descended from the Hartgills, two men whom Stourton murdered in the sixteenth century (as indeed he did, and was duly hanged for it).
Jon is supported in his attempts to avoid spectral attack by Ella, another pupil at the school and the ghost of a knight whom he calls from his tomb in the cathedral to help him. Still more help is provided by Ella's grandmother and, more surprisingly, by The Beard, Jon's name for the bearded dentist who has supplanted him as the man of the family.
The ghosts are satisfactorily nasty, but the end, when Jon decides he likes the Beard after all, but wants to stay on at boarding school seems just a little too easy on the adults...
