If you’re new to Spectre Collectors, you can read the opening chapter of Too Ghoul for School below. Funny, exciting, and action-packed, this series is PERFECT for 9+ year olds.
Denzel is having no luck with his maths homework. First, it’s too difficult, then there’s the terrifying phantom that wants to kill him, then two teenagers explode through his window holding guns and throwing magic. They are the Spectre Collectors, and spooky is their specialty.
Realising that Denzel has a special gift, they sweep him off to their headquarters, where Denzel quickly realises that he is terrible at the job. But there’s a serious problem on its way from the Spectral Realm, and Denzel is going to use all of his non-existent skills to save the day…
