At Ghastly-Gorm Hall preparations for the Full-Moon Fete are in full swing and celebrity cooks come running from all over the country for a bake-off. Even the best painters of England have been announced and Ada’s best friend Emily can barely wait to meet them. Unfortunately, the members of the Attic Club are also very busy apart from Ada, who desperately wants to tell her friends about the weird apparitions she met at midnight.
But William is untraceable, Ruby helps master chef Mr. Harboil to create his works of art and Kingsley and Arthur have their hands full with erecting the splendid Spiegel tent. Nobody has time for Ada and it seems as if her birthday has been forgotten inmidst all this activity. What now?
This book is suitable for readers between 9 and 11 years of age.
