In this entertaining anthology of seven new ghost stories, written especially for Naxos AudioBooks, we meet all kinds of phantoms in different situations: a kind-hearted but accident-prone spectre unwittingly upsetting a family home, as well as ghosts in ancient Egypt, on board a pirate ship, and in a Newcastle swimming pool. Engaging and slightly sinister, The Clumsy Ghost and Other Spooky Tales is a delightful shiver for all the family.
Tom and Sophie Nightingale live on a barge with their zookeeper dad and vet mum and as many animals as you can get on a small boat. Surely there's no room for any more animals in their life. But then there's a bat in peril, an owl on the prowl and an outbreak of night terrors for the zoo's nocturnal residents. Tom and Sophie must stage a moonlit vigil to discover what's going on! An animal-packed caper written with the help of the brilliant team at London Zoo.
The Wilderness is the perfect place for building dens, making fires and camping out all night. It’s the only place where Noah and his friends feel truly free. Then the sign appears - LAND FOR SALE.

One thing is for sure - Noah and his friends are not giving up on the Wilderness without a fight.
Seth, Beefy and Angelo can't believe it when they aren't selected for the football team at their new school. Then they are labelled the 'Freaks' who didn't make it.

The Freaks United are born - and they are going to live up to their name. A fun footballing debut about the lads who don't get picked.
Danny’s parents are storm chasers - which sounds exciting unless you’re the son who has to wait behind at home. And one night Danny’s parents don’t come back. Stranger still, the sycamore tree in Danny’s yard seems to have been struck by lightning, and when he picks up a fragment of wood, he can hear voices...including that of next door’s cat, Mitzy. The stick is a shard of lightning that gives its bearer unnerving powers, and it is very valuable.
Ronald the Magnificent is the youngest wizard in the Wizards’ Club. The trouble is, he is not a very good wizard and all the others tease him terribly. They don’t even let him have his own chair.

And when he does get his pet, it is not as easily controlled as Ronald would have liked. A very funny new book featuring wizards, fire-breathing, some misplaced magic and a lot of sausages!
