Llain who hides in plain sight by cross dressing age inappropriate romantic elements racist jokes about Native Americans being named Big Knee Joint And as I was reading this aloud to my kid I was definitely not expecting to find myself needing to gloss over one evil character s obsession with Adolf Hitler She is a oung kid and had never et heard of Hitler why the heck should she do so in a children s book about Scottish castle ghostsThis was recommended by a children s librarian when I asked about books that could be enjoyed by a kid who liked Lemony Snicket but perhaps with progressive gender roles I have a feeling that librarian hasn t read this book in many ears and remembers it with rose colored glasses because it really missed the mark My kid liked it alright in the end especially flossie the child poltergeist but i did Flossie the child poltergeist but I did I d be willing to check out some of Ibbotson s other books but we won t be reading this one again Visit here for reviewThis is the second book of Ibbotson I read after Dial a Ghost I still like Ibbotson s work respect with children s literature fantasy Meaning I like The Hauntin of Hiram but I like better Dial a Ghost Actually both of the books have the same concept an orphan boy who owns a castle and doesn t know what he should do to maintain it Then the boy has many invisible friends ghosts to accompany him living in this cruel world It seems I exaggerate everything huh Ok let s continueAt the first time readers just see simple and easy problem to overcome But when they come and join the action of the book they will see the problem is grower and complicated than teaser has offered So twist plays its role here Readers won t believe that they ll catch many surprisesIf În excavator (Trilogia Nomilor you ask for moral value from this book of course there are someou can think about after reading Here I provide An Accidental Woman you some good uotes thatou can consider with The braver man is and Krok had been very brave the less he will bully little creatures who cannot defend themselves Ibbotson The Haunting of Hiram 24When Poppet (Jack Caffery, you are thinking of peopleou seem to see them everywhere Ibbotson The Haunting of Hiram 28Alex was shocked Mr Hopgood worked so hard and looked so worried that it hadn t seemed particularly wrong that he should be so rich But people it hadn t seemed particularly wrong that he should be so rich But people their tummy buttons to show which of them was which or keeping the rubbish warm with mink when in other countries children were starving just couldn t be right Ibbotson The Haunnting of Hiram 89What sort of life was it being a millionaire No sort of life at all His stomach was full of acid he never had a decent night s sleep and his daughter danger from every vile sort of crook Ibbotson The Haunting of Hiram 156This book is very interesting and good to be read by children aged 8 9 Moreover it can be a good book to introduce ghost characters to children without scarring them 25 starsThis lacked the charm and sense of atmosphere I usually find so prevalent in Ibbotson s MG books The idea of a Scottish castle transported to America Texas no less and its ghosts following it there was a cute idea and based off a true story excepting the ghosts but I was having trouble mustering up energy to really care It s cute no doubt but not among my favorite of Ibbotson.

The ghosts are all amusing and kind hearted with funny little uirks and they get along well with the boy so nothing that different from GGR Oh but this time we have a Severed Hand who features most prominently in some of the major plot twists and I became surprisingly fond of him What also I really enjoyed in this one is the friendship between Alex and Helen Wonderful And that the father was actually kind hearted and very present in his daughter s life even if Wonderful And that the father was actually kind hearted and very present in his daughter s life even if was a bit over protective The villains are uite awful especially the lead villain who named herself Adolpha after Adolph Hitler She keeps some of his hair at least the shopkeeper assured her it was actually Hitler s in a locket around her neck and she likes to stroke it and meditate on it CREEPY to the max BLEH A few of the things she and her henchmen do are just a little too ucky for my taste and I think sensitive children could be very bothered although the overall tone of the story is so warm and humorous that many children will probably be fine with the occasional intrusion of evil and of course good does win in the end All in all a very fun read for Halloween or any time ou feel like spending time with some fun spooks Young Alex the laird of Carra is forced to sell his ancient and dilapidated Scottish castle to an American millionaire Poor Alex is heartbroken to be leaving his ancestral home but worst of all is the parting with his ghostly friends who haunt the Castle of Carra When the millionaire tears down the castle and transplants it in Texas where his ailing daughter Helen can enjoy it the ghosts accompany the ancient stones of their home and uncover an evil plot to kidnap Helen The good ghosts befriend a mysterious phantom hand and rely on Alex to help save poor Helen from her kidnappersThis has all the charm and silliness that I ve come to love in Ibbotson s books The writing is fresh with a whimsical story telling style I love how weird and wacky the characters are and how every detail about them carries weight in the story The plot is full of preposterous surprises and plenty of action One of the best things about Ibbotson s writing is how she takes ordinary things and turns them upside down to the astonishment of the reader American millionaire Hiram Hopgood buys the family castle of Alex MacBuff the impoverished heir of the MacBuffs of Carra but he doesn t want the castle in Scotland he wants to move it to his hometown of Granite Falls Texas where his ill daughter Helen can enjoy it However Mr Hopgood insists that the castle be ghost free so Alex has to convince his five ghosts to move out When Alex and the ghosts all end up in Granite Falls the stage is set for a lively scary tale of kidnapping and supernatural mayhem I love how Ibbotson mixes humor and deft characterization with genuinely tense and spooky action like a slightly less ghoulish Roald Dahl I really enjoy Ibbotson s ghoulish books The ghosts were so endearing Though Helen and Alex were a bit too perfect and grownup I was surprised by the plot points and enjoyed all the delightful ghostly details This had some cute bits and is not at all badly written but it s really the humor of another era There are so many troubling and offensive things here eg a vi.
