About the Book

You'd think a ghost grandpa would be a great sidekick for a wannabe detective. Unfortunately, if there was a 'being a good ghost' exam, Jay’s grandpa would fail spectacularly -- he hates walking through walls, he can't touch anything and he's rubbish at haunting.

Since his dad literally did a vanishing act (he's a magician), Jay Patel has turned detective, and now, with the help of his grandpa, he's on the case of a dead body that vanished from the library of his Glasgow primary school.

But what do diamonds, blackmail and dodgy launderettes have to do with it?

David Walliams meets Agatha Christie in the first book of a new laugh-out-loud, weird-and-wacky mystery series for younger readers by the author of Thorfinn the Nicest Viking.

About the Book

A boy and his ghost Grandad are detectives in a good old-fashioned murder mystery.


David MacPhail left home at eighteen to travel the world and have adventures. After working as a chicken wrangler, a ghost-tour guide and a waiter on a tropical island, he now has the sensible job of writing about yetis and Vikings. At home in Perthshire, Scotland, he exists on a diet of cream buns and zombie movies. As well as the Thorfinn the Nicest Viking series, David is also the author of the Top-Secret Grandad and Me! series. Richard Morgan was born and raised by goblins on the Yorkshire moors. He has painted backgrounds for Disney TV and now writes and illustrates children's books. He lives in Cambridge, England, and has a family of goblins of his own.Laura Avi�� is an illustrator who lives in Barcelona, Spain.
