{Synopsis} – When Aunt Tabby and Uncle Drac head off to Transylvania, Araminta is upset — they’re going to be away on her birthday. However, when it turns out that her almost-grown-up cousin, Mathilda, will be babysitting, it seems things couldn’t get any better.

But Mathilda’s brought along trouble: two rowdy teenage ghosts, Ned and Jed, who listen to no one. It’s a disaster! Can the girls figure out a way to get Ned and Jed out of the house for good?

{My thoughts} – Araminta is excited because her birthday is coming up and she is looking forward to celebrating. However, her Aunt Tabby wins a contest and all the adults go on a trip leaving the children behind in the care of other adults.

It turns out that her Great Aunt can’t make it to babysit, but her cousin does. Her cousin and Wanda then plan a surprise prefer Araminta without her every figuring out a thing about it.

While Araminta is sad about not being able to celebrate her birthday the way she wanted to she decides to help Sir Horace. Sir Horace’s castle is up for auction and she’s determined to get it back for him.

The end of the book blends both situations together and wraps it all up in a neat little bow.

I am sure any child that likes a bit of mystery and paranormal mixed together can easily enjoy this series as much as I have been. I really am enjoying this series and am looking forward to starting the next book.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
