Monty is allergic to ghosts, and he sneezes when he enters Brinsley Codd School for Sensible Thought. However, he has been sent to the school because he has discovered a ghost in his dad's old car, and his parents want him to come to his senses. Thus begins Monty's search to track down the ghosts of three prior students from long ago in order to restore everyone to sensible thought! This funny story is full of wonderful puns and irony, with characters living up to their names--the nasty teacher is Sogbucket, and the school's principal is Miss Principal. Dotty elderly ladies, squeaky kids and reminiscent old codgers come completely alive under the spell of Mitchley's voice. Even lists and menus are entertaining because of his delightful presentation. Great laughs are in store for kids of all ages. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
