Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–7—Tom Golden can see ghosts. In fact, he is one of the very few humans aware of the parallel Ghost World that exists alongside the normal plane. With his Invisible Friend, Grey Arthur, he is the link for all the Poltergeists, Sadness Summoners, Screamers, and other phantom citizens of the spectral realm. He would like to keep the two sides of his life separate. Talking about ghostly adventures worries his parents-and it doesn't do much for his reputation at school, either. Then, an inexperienced Invisible Friend-in-training tries to help a harried substitute teacher and creates the impression that Tom's school is a hotbed of haunts. When the popular television show "Extremely Haunted Houses of England" decides to feature the story, Tom and his otherworldly friends realize that Ghost World is in serious danger. There is a lot going on here-the TV show, Tom's difficulties at home and school, the "politics" of Ghost World-and it can be a challenge to follow all the twists and turns. The ghostly characters are convincingly depicted, although it is sometimes hard to keep track of who is haunting whom. Familiarity with Tom and Grey's two previous adventures is helpful, but not essential. An acceptable choice for readers who like humorous ghost stories.—Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL

I checked this out at the library, and when I finished I wished I had also checked out the two sequels. After finishing all three books, I bought them from Amazon. These are the kind of stories I like to read over and over. It had an original story line, throwing in some new concepts, such as - ghosts are not the spirits of dead people, they are just another life-form. An exciting, humorous adventure.

Let's be clear - if you like the other Golden and Grey books, you'll like this one. And if you didn't, don't bother.

I happen to like this series, so there you go :)

I'm not going to bother recapping everything I've said before, just a note that the school is as dismal as ever and you should be aware of whether or not your kid is up for that. But three books in, I hope you know by now!

Format: Hardcover
Following the defeat of the Collector, numerous new hauntings were reported across England, as ghosts and humans alike enjoyed the holiday season. It seemed like the joy would never end. Then January arrives, along with the First Day Back to School, a day often filled with excitement and dread for students of Thorbleton Secondary School. But for Tom Golden, it is also the beginning of yet another daring adventure involving the Ghost World.

When Grey Arthur tells Tom that Montague Equador Scullion the Third's human, Mrs. Wilson, a substitute Science teacher at Thorbleton, may have figured out that ghosts exist and that "Exceedingly Haunted Homes of England" has been called to investigate, Tom feels a strong sense of foreboding. Grey, though, couldn't be more thrilled at the prospect of being on his favorite television show. The young Invisible Friend tries persuading the reluctant student to help him and the rest of the Invisible Friends --- The Harrowing Screamer, Mildred Rattledust, Monty and Tike --- achieve their "fifteen minutes of fame," even if Grey thinks that the program's new psychic is "a fake" (a theory proven true by an embarrassing and rather funny scandal involving the show's previous psychic star).

News spreads about the recent developments, and the next day Tom and the Invisible Friends are stunned by the hysteria that has swept over Thorbleton. Relieved that they can't be seen, the Invisible Friends, along with Tom (volunteering as a tea boy), anxiously wait for the big day to arrive.

Unfortunately, it's not at all the fun and games that Grey expects, when the new psychic Claudia Sage is apparently indeed psychic. There is more than meets the eye, though, when Tom discovers the truth behind her unique ability.
