Publisher's Summary

High Manners Manor creaks and groans as old houses do-but this is no ordinary house. In the dark, specters hiss, ghosts grumble, and skeleton boy Billy Bones and his family file the Biglum family's deepest secrets in a locked and hidden closet. When Billy makes his first human friend, Millicent Biglum, the real adventure begins.
In the tradition of filmmaker Tim Burton, Christopher creates a richly-imaginative, spooky adventure where friendships bloom, betrayals linger, schemes entangle-and heroism appears in the most unexpected places.

What the Critics Say

"Full of creatively descriptive language, this delightful story moves along rapidly, bordering on but never crossing into campy." (School Library Journal)

A great book for kids who like "not too spooky"

Would you listen to Billy Bones: Tales from the Secrets Closet again? Why?

Sure. The main character is engaging, the narrator is very good and the story is a real original.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Billy, of course, but there are so many entertaining characters it's hard to pick. Okay, I'll go with a few - Billy's friend Millicent, Dame Biglum, and Glass-Eyed Pete the pirate. They are all feisty and fun.


Any additional comments?

Peter Bishop's reading is a dead ringer for Neil Gaiman, which is weird! His voice and accent are eerily like Mr. G's.
