Ghost Poets and Castle Rhymers

Tove Berggren & Hanna Granlund

Where do the old journals come from? Why are the children so tired and what are they writing? Miss Ruth knows better than to snoop around but can’t help it. Suddenly, a cup falls to the floor and the journal that she has opened closes by itself. Quickly she pulls her hand away and hurries out of the Countess’ Writing Room, down the long castle stairs…

What is really going on in the old castle? A mysterious cat with patches in its coat, a missing letter and a few shoes trotting around. While Maria, Alice, Osman, Storm and the other children attend the writing camp, the old ghost poets have come to life and they have things to say.

A cozy chapter book that also contains writing exercises to spark writing joy and creativity. Short chapters and humorous illustrations in black and white make this book easy to read, from about 9 years old.

Tove Berggren is an author and writing pedagogue and has previously published the books about Lennart Lordi. Hanna Granlund has among other things, illustrated the series Ghost Sisters by Mårten Melin.
