About this product
- DescriptionQuagmire Castle is the much-loved, but totally dilapidated, home to a motley cast of humans and ghosts. When it comes to saving the Castle from demolition at the hands of the the gruesome bank manager, Gordon Grabbit, Aunt Tabitha's solution is to start knitting. Fortunately, her niece and nephew, Emily and Jack, are determined to preserve their beloved home. Meanwhile, upstairs in the attic, the whist-playing ghosts, Dudley and Delicia (together with their pet monkey, Powderball), can smell trouble, too. Soon, it's all hands to the pump (even if some of those hands are see-through) in an effort to save Quagmire Castle. And body could ever have predicted the chaos and hilarity that will ensue! This is a laugh-a-minute action adventure with as madcap a cast of characters as you're ever likely to meet. Ather winner from the highly-acclaimed author of Something Slimy on Primrose Drive - which sold out in hardback virtually upon publication.
