Praise for Mortimer Keene: Ghosts on the Loose

  • Humorous rhyming text is well matched with lively, amusing illustrations. - Peters Gazette

  • Great for newly confident readers. - Guardian

  • Another visual feast full of fun... top notch ghost-busting! - WRD Magazine

  • This snappy verse story is great fun for the target audience. The rhymes are punchy and very easy on the ear. - The Bookbag

  • It is only now that one of my sons has reached the right reading stage that I realise the sheer genius of Tim Healey and Chris Mould's Mortimer Keene series. I have never seen him devour a book with so many tricky words so fast as he did... zany comic writing and elegantly ghastly pictures that are the joy. - The Glasgow Herald
