A Frightful Recipe 
(The Chatswood Spooks #1)

The Chatswood Spooks are in trouble. If they don't improve their scare tactics they'll have to find somewhere else to haunt. But the spooks have lived their entire afterlives at the Chatswood Manor, and are determined to show just how scary they can be.

Unfortunately, they haven't counted on having to scare Ivan the Fearless...

Sheets and Ladders (The Chatswood Spooks #2)

With his sheets, chains and pet spider, Jingo likes to look the part of the classic ghost. So when someone puts their red knickers in with Jingo's favourite white haunting sheets, Jingo is devastated.

Feeling hurt and unloved, he decides to run away to join the local Carnival. But what Jingo has in spooking skills he lacks in street smarts, and he soon finds himself in trouble...

The Halliday's Maladies (The Chatswood Spooks #3)

Excitement reigns when the famous Halliday ghosts arrive at Chatswood Manor. After all, what better chance for the Chatswood Spooks to learn some new haunting skills?

But star-struck as they are, the spooks can't help but wonder whether the Hallidays are all that they seem...
About Notti Thistledore

Notti Thistledore writes very silly books for young readers. She lives in a rickety old house that may or may not be haunted (she hopes so, because that might increase its value) and which is full of dusty old books and cats and probably termites. She is the author of The Chatswood Spooks series.

    1. :) thanks for coming by Jambo! your giveaway looks like fun too!

  3. When I was little my very favorite book was 'Ramona Quimby' by Beverly Cleary. I became so obsessed that I named one of my goldfish, Willa Jean after one of the characters. My brother, who was quite a bit older than me (7 years) liked that name, too. He was very artsy and so he painted a barbie doll with all sorts of different colors for an art project. As a joke, he named the barbie doll, Willa Jean. For some reason he thought it would be a good idea to take it with him to music camp that summer. When his cabin mates got wind of the fact that he had a deformed, painted barbie doll sitting on his bed, his name forevermore was Willa Jean. All this because I liked the book 'Ramona Quimby' as a child.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
