Publisher's Summary

Boy hero Tom, Hugo the Averagely Spooky Ghost, and famed ghoul hunter Hetty Hyssop have formed an agency dedicated to dealing with difficult apparitions. No spook can defeat them, until their too close encounter with a Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost (or "GILIG" in ghosthunter-speak).This superheated specter has taken over the penthouse suite of a beach-front hotel, where it's passing its eternal vacation by turning guests into ghosts themselves!
Maybe Hugo's slime can douse the flaming phantom, or maybe the ghosterhunters' plan is doomed to go up in smoke...Get scared silly!

Definitely a Good LIsten!

Any additional comments?

After reading Cornelia Funke’s first Ghosthunter’s book, we purchased the other three books in audiobook form from This book continues the adventures of eleven-year old Tom and Hetty Hyssop, with the addition of Hugo, an ASG (Averagely Spooky Ghost), to their team. Alvin Bigshot calls them to his seaside resort to deal with, what turns out to be, a Gruesome Invincible Lightning Ghost (GILG). Any seven to ten-year old Ghostbusters fan will appreciate their suspenseful escapades. As in Ghosthunters Book 1, I appreciated the advanced and unique vocabulary sprinkled throughout the book. John Beach’s narration makes the audiobook equally appealing to adults. The entire Ghosthunters series is definitely a good listen… and great for long car trips!
