Summary

Summary

In the seventh and final installment of the popular 43 Old Cemetery Road series, twelve-year-old Seymour Hope has inherited a castle in Loch Ness, Scotland. It could be the perfect summer vacation spot for Seymour and his parents, Olive C. Spence and Ignatius B. Grumply. But Iggy wants nothing to do with the castle. Why? Because it was owned by his uncle Ian, a world-famous psychiatrist and the world's worst punster. So Iggy stays home to write, and Seymour and Olive set off for Scotland--each with a secret.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-When author Ignatius P. Grumply first moved into the Spence Mansion, he came across two very unlikely writing collaborators: an abandoned preteen, Seymour Hope, and Olive, the ghostly former inhabitant of the house. In this outing, the death of Ignatius's uncle Ian sends Seymour and Olive to Scotland to check out the castle Seymour's just inherited. Meanwhile, Ignatius copes with an expensive missing tortoise and a visitor: the ghost of Uncle Ian. Told entirely through letters, instant messages, drawings, and other ephemera, this sweetly spooky romp will have reluctant readers and bookworms chuckling. © Copyright 2015.
