This little scientific geek, Much havoc does he like to wreak…

ghosts on the looseA pleasure it’s been
To read Mortimer Keene
The rhyming is slick,
The action is quick.

Illustrated all through
In black, white and blue,
This series will run
As there’s guaranteed fun!

Phew, that was hard work, and it’s sooo bad – just confirming how difficult it is actually to come up with a rollicking rhyming story, with a vocabulary suitable for emergent readers, and an exciting romp of a plot.  The lively illustrations by Chris Mould are an integral part of the story, and add a suitable air of ghostly mystery.
