Publisher's Summary

The ghost that haunts Canterville Chase has built a marvelous career of midnight haunting. But when an American family moves in, they simply have no respect for permanent bloodstains, nightmarish chains, or ancient legends. They even throw pillows at him.

What a treat!

Would you listen to The Canterville Ghost [Classic Tales Edition] again? Why?

Absolutely! It was such a refreshing and fun ghost story as well as a quick example of Oscar Wilde's biting genius.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Canterville Ghost [Classic Tales Edition]?

My favorite and most memorable moments were of the Ghost trying to gain the upper hand over the Americans. Highly recommended reading.

Have you listened to any of B. J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but it would be a pleasure to listen to another of B.J. Harrison's performances. Well done!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Fiendishly frolicking foibles featuring foreigners and phantoms...

Any additional comments?

Loved this fun little gem!
