Read full description of the books:
Someone is causing havoc in East End Cottage, and for once it isn’t James. When strange scrawled notes start appearing all over his new family home in the old Oxfordshire village of Ledsham, 10-year-old James seems the obvious culprit. But only he knows the troublemaker’s true identity – Thomas Kempe, a petulant 17th-century sorcerer who has taken up residence as a poltergeist in his new bedroom. And to make matters worse, no one will believe him. So, to avoid missing out on pocket money and pudding for the rest of his life, it will be up to James to find out why Thos. Kempe Esq., Sorcerer, has returned, and how to get rid of him.
Pam Smy has created over two dozen whimsical illustrations for this edition. Characters such as Mrs Verity, Tim the dog and Bert – the builder-cum-exorcist – are brought vividly to life. Many of the images are integrated with the text, whisking the reader along with James around the streets of Ledsham and the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside.
