THE GHOST OF ABLE MABEL AND THE SPECTRE OF HAIRY HECTOR

by | Read by Richard Mitchley

Children Ages 8+ • 1.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Richard Mitchley is at his best as he regales listeners with two nautical ghost stories. Each character is presented in his or her unique goodness or badness. Able Mabel is big, mean, and scary, having stolen Sam's grandfather's hard-earned gold. Sam is outraged and determined to help. Hairy Hector rears his creepy head when poor Jack and Aunt Arcady's luck changes and they inherit a big, old house that seems haunted--only Jack can find out. Mitchley not only creates splendid personalities, but also lets loose with such memorable one-liners as "the sailors' jokes were worse than their snores." There's fun and shivers galore.
