Publisher's Summary

Eight-year-old Barney is willing to accept that the ghost of his Great-Uncle Cole might wish to be friends with him, but his family are sceptical. However, some of his older relations admit that there does seem to be something special about the boy. Barney's sister, practical Tabitha, determines to solve the mystery - but it is Troy, the oldest of the children, who finds out what the truth really is....

A Classic!

I liked this book as a child; turns out it has aged really well! Still very enjoyable to revisit as an adult!
This is a real classic, from a celebrated New Zealand author - Margaret Mahy.
Performance also lovely, has a real joy of childhood to his tone.
So glad I got this!
