Über diesen Titel
The three mischievous Sweet children discover that their new house is home to three eccentric ghosts who want only to be left alone.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-- The wealthy Sweet family moves into their new rental home. The three unruly children quickly discover that they are sharing their quarters with three eccentric ghosts. By rights the house should belong to Miss Amy Steadings, best friend of the recently deceased owner, Mercia Porterhouse; however, no one can find Mercia's will. The ghosts are subjected to all sorts of indignities by the noisy, precocious children, who are not the least bit frightened by the resident spooks. In fact, the ghosts are more than a little intimidated by the antics of the children. The Sweet children find the will and move out so that Amy can assume her role as caretaker of the ghosts. This is a lightweight, cleverly told tale with a distinct British style, enhanced by a number of amusing drawings that enable readers to see what the ghosts actually look like. The Sweet family is mildly reminiscent of Helen Cresswell's "Bagthorpes" (Macmillan). The doty parents play endless games of backgammon and remain oblivious to the uproar going on around them. Thoughtful readers may wonder why the dear departed Mercia did not become a ghost herself, or why some dead souls must linger on while others do not. Most young people, however, will enjoy the story for what it is: a humorous romp with some non-threatening spirits. This is one ghost story that will evoke chuckles, not shivers. --Bruce Ann Shook, Mendenhall Middle School, Greensboro, N.C.
