Spook School by Sue Purkiss


Spook School by Sue Purkiss

What could be worse for a ghost than not being frightening enough? That's Spooker's problem as he faces his Practical Haunting examinations at the Anne Boleyn Secondary School, under the watchful eye of the Inspectre-ate and Sir Rupert Grimsdyke (who's definitely not Spooker's favourite teacher). He isn't helped by the fact that he's sent for training to a brand-new house in Buttercup Avenue - not at all the kind of dingy, creaky building in which ghosts feel most comfortable. Spooker must find a way to spook the most unspookable people imaginable ...Or maybe ghosts don't have to be scary, after all?

About the Author

As a child, Sue Purkiss always wanted to be a writer, but it wasn't until she had been a teacher and brought up her three children that she found time to realize her dream occupation. She now combines writing with part-time teaching. This is her first published book.
