Two tales in a series of four about the 17th-century ghosts of Creakie Hall and their present-day descendants whom they help in times of danger.
These 'easy to read' stories are curiously appealing - the ghosts have kept up with modern life albeit from afar, and their various hobbies prove very useful in averting catastrophes; they also have various magical powers to use when helping the 'flesh 'n' bloods'.
The stories' rapid pace means that they sometimes presuppose knowledge on the part of the reader, or rely too much on stereotypes - however the books are funny and quite well-constructed, with Tony Ross's many illustrations complementing the text well.
