All of the quirky characters are back in this delightful sequel (Chicken House, 2006) to Cornelia Funke's Ghosthunters and the Incredibly Revolting Ghost (Chicken House, 2006). Nine-year-old Tom, Hugo, the Averagely Spooky Ghost, and ghoul hunter Hetty Hyssop are called to a fancy beachfront resort where the guests are being turned into ghosts. Armed with the tools of their trade, cake icing and champagne, the trio quickly finds the root of the problem-a Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost-and uses all of their courage and skills to defeat it and save the remaining guests at the resort. Veteran voice actor John Beach skillfully brings to life the madcap adventures by giving each character a unique voice that conjures up fantastic images in listeners' minds. This enjoyable story will thrill both fans of and those new to the series. A must have for every collection.

All of the ghosthunters books in this series are wonderful, imaginative, and also hysterically funny. I read them to my precocious daughter (4), and she is a huge fan. I would highly recommend them to first and second grade students. They might be a little scary for young kids, but the young ones love the ghosthunters. I like how Cornelia's books always include a wise, elderly woman as a guide.
Strongly recommend all of Funke's books. She is a fabulous writer and knows her audience (children) well.
