A review by Margaret Pemberton (schools adviser, recently-retired children’s librarian and past chair of YLG and Carnegie book award).
“This is a really brilliant little book for the younger confident reader. It is the story of Winnie and her parents who own Starcross Hall, but who look as if they are about to lose it because of trickery and evil doing by a council official and a ghost hunter. Knitbone is the beloved pet dog who has died but finds himself still at the hall because of his intense loyalty and love for Winnie and the family. How they and their other ghostly friends prevent disaster makes for a fun filled story.’
