Overview

In a quaint New England town with a history of witches and pilgrims, misunderstood eleven-year-old Norman Babcock can see and talk to ghosts. No one believes him, of course-everyone just thinks he's weird (including his parents).

He'll also have to take on a very angry witch, an annoying sidekick, his boy-crazy teenage sister, and dozens of moronic grown-ups who get in his way. This young ghoul whisperer finds his paranormal talents pushed to their otherworldly limits in this hilarious and spooky adventure!

Featuring gorgeous black-and-white interior illustrations and a story beyond what you'll see in the film, this novel is sure to delight!

I heard that there is a movie for this book. I saw the comercial and it looked really really great!:) is this the full version?if it is i am going to get it that is a good deal! My mom always tells ne to read the book before the movie. I saw the commercial in theaters so it will be a while till it comes out......long enough to read the book:)
