Ghosts and Gadgets

Solstice and Edgar, the sulky raven, go ghost-hunting, and pit their wits against the obnoxious Captain Spookini, in the second quirky mystery by Blue Peter award-winning team Marcus Sedgwick and Pete Williamson.

Join the wonderfully weird Otherhand family and their faithful guardian, Edgar the raven, and discover the dark secrets of Castle Otherhand. The rumblings and wailings from the Lost South Wing can no longer be ignored, as one by one, members of the castle are being found frozen, 'scared to death'. With mother, Minty, obsessing over her latest fad - sewing - and father, Valevine, busy experimenting with a machine to discover the Lost Otherhand treasure, it's up to aspiring ghost-hunters Solstice and Cudweed to solve the mystery.

But as usual, things don't go quite as planned... It's just as well Edgar is there to save the day! Second in a six-book series of tales of mystery (with a touch of goth-froth).
Edgar, the 'self-appointed guardian and saviour of Otherhand Castle' is a wonderful creation: vain, pompous and pleased with himself, he narrates the story of FLOOD AND FANG with wit.
