The Chatswood spooks are in trouble. Spookiness levels at the Chatswood Manor are at an all-time low, and their boss is not impressed. The spooks need to improve their scare tactics or find another house to haunt.

But the spooks have no intention of moving on: they still have plenty of unfinished business to attend to. Rallying together, they haunt the hallowed hallways of Chatswood Manor like never before.

The spooks, however, get the fright of their afterlives when Ivan the Fearless shows up…

The Chatswood Spooks: A Frightful Recipe is the first in the Chatswood Spooks series. Aimed at readers from Grade 2-4, each story is illustrated with detailed line drawings and is bursting with silliness.
