Om två syskon som ska tillbringa sommaren hos några äldre släktingar medan föräldrarna är i USA och jobbar ihop välförtjänta pengar. Också på slottet saknas pengar och syskonen kommer på idén att ta hjälp av riktiga spöken för att locka fler besökare. Planen funkar men tyvärr finns det andra som vill utnyttja samma idé och som framför allt inte vill varken barnen, slottet eller slottets stolthet: den vita koflocken väl. När korna försvinner får barnen och spökena ett helt annat uppdrag än de tänkt sig...

Spännande, sorglig, rolig, medryckande med karaktärer man verkligen känner för. Precis det där som gör Eva Ibbotsons böcker så speciella innehåller också den här boken. Stundtals är den ganska mörk, men också det är karaktärisktiskt på ett mycket possitivt sätt. ( )

Madlyn and Rollo have been sent to stay with their aunt and uncle for the summer. When they arrive at Clawstone Castle, they discover that the castle is in trouble. Tourists have all but stopped visiting and the money is running out. And it's important to have money for the upkeep of the wondrous, rare white cattle that live on the grounds. With the help of a ghostly uncle, Madlyn and Rollo assemble a team of spectres and ghouls to help them bring visitors to the castle... but will it be enough to save them??

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are well-developed and likeable, especially the ghosts. Although the description of the ghosts is a bit gruesome at times, you get to know and love them. Many twists and turns in the plot keep the action moving forward... Just when you think things are going to be okay, something new comes along and Madlyn & Rollo are faced with a new problem.

Highly recommended! ( )
