Bloomsbury, 2014. ISBN 9781408838648
(Age: 9+) Highly recommended. Araminta Spook- Ghostsitters sees our main character, Araminta, about to celebrate her birthday but her auntie has won a trip of a lifetime to Transylvania leaving Araminta to celebrate alone. When she realises she can throw herself a party and invite her ghost friends, she is happy again until her Aunt suggests a babysitter! Not fun. Thankfully, it is cousin Mathilda and her ghost friends. Maybe Araminta's birthday will be fun after all.
Araminta Spook - Ghostsitters is a fun story with a spooky theme. With an Uncle Drac, living in a spook house with ghosts and a family who likes bats, it is sure to appeal to all readers but highly recommended for girls aged 9+. The text is easy to read and full of fun comments. It is descriptive and moves quickly as the young girls enjoy their time without adult supervision and a couple of naughty ghosts.
