Bertie was the smallest Boggin in a house full of Bogginses. He was smaller than Max, smaller than Elsie, smaller even than the dog, Tojo. Max and Elsie despised him, and if they ever agreed to play with him, Bertie was all too likely to end up as the Cannibals’ dinner. So he was pleased when he found the Ghost in the coalshed, particularly when the Ghost promised to be his Best Friend....
A funny and entertaining story about a little boy and his phantom friend, from acclaimed author Catherine Sefton.
