“When washed-up children's book writer I.B. Grumply rents out an old haunted house to finish his very overdue last book, he's shocked to discover he's not the only inhabitant. Told completely in letters, newspaper clippings, drawings, and other forms of correspondence, this is a wholly original and thoroughly enjoyable tale.”
— Shannon Grant, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA

Description


Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can crack a wicked case of writer's block. But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive. It's hard to say who is more outraged. But a grumpy old ghost just might inspire this grumpy old man--and the abandoned kid? Well, let's just say his last name's Hope.
Sisters Kate and M. Sarah Klise, the creators of the award-winning Regarding the . . . series, offer up this debut volume in a clever new series told in letters, drawings, newspaper articles, a work-in-progress manuscript, and even an occasional tombstone engraving.
