Ghost Club 1: The New Kid




A slightly spooky but mostly funny series about the mischief ghosts can make - and
the kids who take care of the mess.

Angelina and Edgar might be kids, but they're also two of Ghost Club's youngest
ghost-catchers. Got a problem with a ghost, poltergeist or ghoul? Can't sleep because of all
the rattling chains and cackling laughter? Angeline and Edgar are the experts to call.

So it's entirely logical that when new kid Dylan joins Ghost Club, Angeline and Edgar are the perfect candidates to introduce him to everything he needs to know, from which
ghost-catching gadget will do the trick to when to run like crazy to avoid being splattered
with ectoplasm.

The trouble is, Dylan's not quite sure he wants to be a ghost-catcher . . .

About the Author

Deborah Abela

After completing a teaching degree, Deb went to Africa where she was caught in a desert sandstorm, harassed by monkeys and thrown in jail … twice! She produced and wrote a national kids’ TV show before leaving to write twenty-six books including the Max Remy Superspy and Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series and Grimsdon, New City and Final Storm, about kids living in a climate-changed world. Teresa A New Australian was inspired by her dad who was born in a cave during one of the heaviest bombing raids of World War II. The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee and the sequel, The Most Marvelous International Bee, were inspired by her grade four teacher, Miss Gray. Her first picture book is Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero. She is a proud ambassador for the Premier’s Reading Challenge, Room to Read and Books in Homes. Deb’s won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters.

Praise for Ghost Club 1: The New Kid

“A spook-tacular read!”

Total Girl

“Abela's wonderfully idiosyncratic characters light up the pages in this ghostly romp that never becomes too serious or scary. The first instalment in a brilliant new series that is the perfect mix of funny and clever, quirky and cute.”

Aleesah Darlison, Sun Herald

“Humorous, at times spooky, mystery, with clever, likeable protagonists and a premise that will keep readers entertained.”

Clare Hingston, Magpies
