Dial-a-Ghost is about a ghost family who died in World WAR II.They are Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson, Eric, and Addie. They go to an agency called Adopt a Ghost, who finds homes for ghosts. The agency finds them a new home called Helton Hall. The family meets a new human friend and go through all kinds of adventures.

I liked this book because there was a lot of action and story twists. Another reason I liked this book is because Eric is a boyscout like me. This book is not like Eva Ibbotson's other books because the plot is more complex with more twists and surprises. I like all of her books but this one I like the most! Some of her other books are Which Witch, The Secret of Plat Form 13 and Island of the Aunts.

If you like ghosts, happy endings and strange twists , this book is for you! I recommend this book for all ages.
