The Spectre Inspectors / The Poltergeist's Problem Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Nicolas Rix

Part of the Tangled Tales series

Paperback / softback


Tangled Tales are a new innovative junior fiction format which involves two stories in one book. Each side follows a different character in the same story, which aims to encourage children to see that not everything is always what it seems. Whether it's a gang of ghost-hunting kids and the ghost they're convinced isn't there or a vegetarian vampire and a struggling fairy actress, these books are sure to get everyone giggling and thinking.

The Spectre Inspectors

Rupert, Bertie, Mindi and Spooks the cat are the Spectre Inspectors: ghost hunters for hire. Except they have one problem: they haven’t actually ever seen, met or even captured a ghost. With Rupert, their leader, close to giving up, can one last case change it all?

The Poltergeist's Problem

Arthur died a long time ago and has wanted to be free from his house ever since... but can’t go further than the front door. When Bravewaite Manor is put up for sale however, Arthur will have to fight to save it. But how can he do that when he can barely switch off a light?
