From the Publisher:
A family of nice ghosts protects a British orphan from the diabolical plans of his evil guardians.The Dial-a-Ghost Agency finds good homes for ghosts. And Fulton and Frieda Snodde-Brittle are looking for a few frightening ghosts to "accidentally" scare their young cousin and heir, Oliver, to death. The ladies at the Dial-a-Ghost Agency have the perfect match: the Shriekers, two bloodstained and bickering horrors. But thanks to a mix-up at the agency, the Wilkinsons, a kind family of ghosts, arrive instead. Can they put a stop to the Snodde-Brittles' schemes before it's too late?

Illustrated by Kevin Hawkes.

Praise

Locus
"...Ibbotson has a hilarious was of saying truly terrible things in a very nice way, a wry wit that should be appreciated by readers of all ages." - Carolyn Cushman December 2001

Kirkus Reviews
"While much of this territory may seem familiar, it is never old to young readers who like their humor laced with blood-curdling screams, and just can't get enough." 05/15/2001

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The predictable but enjoyable plot moves quickly, the text has wit, and the characterizations are specific and funny." - Janice M. Del Negro September 2001
