Bestselling author Angie Sage (who penned the Septimus Heap trilogy) has created a small and not too scary character, Araminta Spookie, who will appeal to younger listeners not yet ready for real frights. Araminta divides her time between hunting ghosts and sabotaging her Aunt Tabby's efforts to sell the sprawling, cobwebby house in which they live. Help arrives from an unexpected ally, Sir Horace, a haunted suit of armor. Katherine Kellgren's lovely British voice breathes life into all the characters--from her believably childlike Araminta to crabby Aunt Tabby and hollow-sounding Sir Horace. She also seems to relish sharing the details of Araminta's haunted house, breathing dusty life into all the old staircases, bat caves, and cobwebbed corners of this book.
