9780142403716: The Haunting of Granite Falls

American millionaire Hiram C. Hopgood will stop at nothing to make his daughter, Helen, happy—even if it means buying her an ancient Scottish castle and shipping it back to Texas. Assembling the castle isn’t a problem for the oil tycoon . . . it’s the ghosts that worry him. Hopgood has made up his mind: the ghouls have got to go. But these spirits don’t spook so easily. Instead, they make their way to America, where they meet up with a magical severed hand and three fiendish, cross-dressing kidnappers for a Texassized adventure with a ghostly Scottish flair.

About the Author:

Eva Ibbotson lives in the north of England. Kevin Hawkes lives in Gorham, Maine.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-7. When Hiram C. Hopgood purchases a Scottish castle, called Castle Cara, for his daughter, Helen, and has it shipped back to Texas, he has no idea that he has also acquired a coterie of ghosts that have lived in the castle for hundreds of years. But after Helen and the castle's former owner, 12-year-old orphan Alex MacBuff, who has accompanied Hopgood to America, are kidnapped, it's the resident ghosts (including Krok, a Viking warrior; Miss Spinks, a governess intent on drowning herself; Stanislaus, a toothless vampire; Flossie, a child/poltergeist; and Cyril, a hellhound) who come to the rescue. Ibbotson, the author of The Great Ghost Rescue (2002) and numerous other humorous fantasies, excels in her depiction of quirky characters, and the idea of Scottish ghosts in rural Texas adds absurdity to the convoluted, comical plot. Briticisms abound, but they should pose few problems for American readers already familiar with Harry Potter. Kay Weisman
