Publisher's Summary

Earthquakes? Or poltergeists?

The second installment in the popular Ghostsitter series.

Tom's life changed quite a bit since he inherited a Ghost Train full of living dead creatures. As the fairground is struck by mysterious earthquakes, even Mimi the ghost-girl seems to pale. Vlarad the Vampire has reason to believe that a restless poltergeist haunts the old town square. So, Tom and his undead friends have to go ghost-hunting - without anyone noticing, of course.

The second adventure of 14-year-old Tom and his ghostly companions is full of spooks, gags and some surprises - a joy for listeners young, old, and undead alike.
