After spending most of his 10 years in a London orphanage, Oliver Smith is horrified to discover he is the sole master of a grand old mansion. Oliver is quite satisfied with his life just as it is, but he soon finds himself ensconced in a spooky, creaky tower bedroom in Helton Hall, under the care of his two cruelly calculating cousins, the Snodde-Brittles. Cousin Fulton and Cousin Frieda, next in line to inherit the family mansion if something should happen to Oliver, have offered to help him settle in to his new home. Of course, if the matron of the orphanage knew that this assistance involved renting bloodthirsty ghosts from the Dial-a-Ghost Agency in hopes of frightening the boy to death, she certainly wouldn't have allowed Oliver out of her sight. As it turns out, though, there's been a bit of a mix-up at Dial-a-Ghost. The gruesome specters intended for Helton Hall accidentally end up at a convent, while the gentle family of ghosts that wind up in Oliver's home suit him just fine, much to his evil cousins' dismay.
Eva Ibbotson has established herself as a true master of her genre with her extraordinary fantasy novels such as Which Witch? and Island of the Aunts. In Dial-a-Ghost, Ibbotson continues to excel in wit, whimsy, and wisdom. It's as if one's favorite crazy aunt has dropped by to tell the kind of convoluted and magical story children really want to hear. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

This is a really fun read. There are some illustrations, but the author's descriptions are so vivid they are practically unecessary. My nephew loved this book.
Oliver was a kind boy. He was an orphan though. He was always very outgoing, so he made a lot of friends at the Home. He lived happily there, until one day when he was whisked off to an enormous thirty-room mansion named Helton Hall. He had inherited the Snoode-Brittle fortune because all of his relatives had died. His cousin Fulton was next in line to inherit the money, so Fulton began plotting against Oliver.
Fulton made his way to the adoption center, called Adopt-A-Ghost, because he was planning to scare Oliver to death. He wanted the meanest, slimiest, biggest, scariest ghosts to haunt the mansion imaginable.
Now the Adopt-A-Ghost agency had a big problem. They had the meanest, slimiest, biggest, scariest ghosts that they had to find a home for. The Shriekers. Time was running out, and if they didn't hurry up, the ghosts would get impatient and eat them alive! It was a miracle from heaven to the ladies running the agency when Fulton Snoode-Brittle walked in the door and offered to give the Shriekers a home. There was only one problem left that the ladies were unaware of. Their delivery boy was colorblind. He wasn't an extreme case, but he couldn't tell red and green apart, so he accidentally gave the Wilkinson's the directions to the Helton Hall Mansion, and the Shreikers, the directions to a nun's sanctuary where the Wilkinson's were supposed to live.
When the Wilkinson's finally got to Helton Hall, they met a young boy named Oliver. Oliver wasn't scared the least bit, although he had been dreading meeting the ghosts, because he assumed they were there to kill him. Rumor got to Fulton that after Fulton left some three days before to flee from the ghosts, that Oliver went mad and drowned himself in the lake behind Helton Hall. Fulton was overjoyed! The inheritance was his! When he made his way to the house though, cautious of the ghosts, the Wilkinson's teamed up with Oliver and turned Fulton out of the house. They wrote a letter to Oliver's guardian, explaining what had happened. He showed up a week later, and together they turned half of the mansion into a sanctuary for ghosts and the other half into a home for all of Oliver's orphaned friends. He lived happily from then on.
