THE REAL HALLOWEEN
Sean lives in Ballyyahoo, a magical town on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. He thinks it should be called Ballynowhere because there’s nothing to do and nowhere to do it.
That’s why he loves Halloween and all things scary.
Sean reads ghost stories every night by torchlight. But, one night his mother catches him reading a really gruesome book and bans him from reading any more scary stories.
He runs all the way to his Grandad’s house, even though it’s dark and even though it’s Halloween.
Sean isn’t scared of anything… until his Grandad tells him the scariest story he’s ever heard.
Sean’s family has been keeping a secret. A terrifying secret! The secret of an Uncle he never knew he had, not to mention the terrible secret of a haunted well!
‘Just in time for Halloween! This book brought back so many fond memories. As a child there was nothing I’d love more than a spooky tale. Whether it was under the bed sheets with a flash light, or sitting around a camp fire. One things for sure, your kids are going to love this book.
I read it with my grandaughter and now we’re hooked. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of Grace Jolliffe’s Ballyyahoo series!’ – LORELIE ROZZANO
Don’t buy your kids sweets this Halloween; if you want to treat them, buy them this book instead. It’s a great, spooky yarn with a brave hero they can identify with, it’s easy to read, and the atmosphere builds to a satisfying conclusion which they will just love, and so will you.’ –
