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...
In a spirit (no pun intended) of educating through entertaining the settings are real locations in Salisbury and surroundings of cathedral, school and other places, and the ghost personae are based on real historic figures. A useful `Glossary' defines key words and presents factual detail on English royalty, associated individuals, Druids etc. and on events such as Crusades, signing of Magna Carta etc. Author Cornelia Funke also includes a `Note' explaining how she got the idea for `Ghost Knight' together with an insight to her research. However one of the most appealing features is the incorporation of delightful yet sometimes disturbing black & white illustrations. These are magnificent and lift what is a probably a good 4-star story to a well deserved 5-star publication.
