A school trip to the seaside couldn’t come at a better time – sea and sand could be just what I need to take my mind off my past. But things are not what they seem here at Crumley Castle, and it’s not long before I, Poppy Pym, find myself in the middle of my most dangerous case yet.
Impossible disappearances, long-buried secrets and dangerous threats. Can the ghost stories be true? Or is the real villain right under our noses?
This book is suitable for readers between 8 and 12 years of age.
Another great adventure in the Poppy Pym series! This one has it all – a spooky castle, ghostly smugglers and the world’s greatest ice cream.
