Description
"I will buy your castle," declared Hiram C. Hopgood. "But only if there are no ghosts." In this delightful ghost tale from the author of the Carnegie Medal nominee Which Witch? for readers 8 to 12, young Alex MacBuff can't afford to keep his beloved Castle Carra, and so sells it to Hopgood, an American millionaire. Castle Carra is shipped all the way to Texas, but its ghostly inhabitants, including Krok the Viking warrior and a hellhound called Cyril, follow their home across the Atlantic. How can Alex stop them haunting Hiram—and also save the millionaire's daughter Helen from an evil kidnapping plot?

"Funny, gripping, charming and completely irresistible."—Amanda Craig

"[Eva] Ibbotson, the author of The Great Ghost Rescue and numerous other humorous fantasies, excels in her depiction of quirky characters, and the idea of Scottish ghosts in rural Texas adds absurdity to the convoluted, comical plot. Briticisms abound, but they should pose few problems for American readers already familiar with Harry Potter."—Booklist
