Publisher's Summary

Sell the cemetery? Over their dead bodies.... Not many people can see the dead (and not many would want to). Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And he's got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site. But the dead aren't going to take it lying down... especially since it's Halloween tomorrow.
Besides, they're beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were... well... alive. Particularly if they break a few rules.

Perfectly Pratchett

What was one of the most memorable moments of Johnny and the Dead?

When the dead realized they could go anywhere instead of waiting for Judgement Day.

Any additional comments?

Heart, humor, social commentary and compelling characters and stories - exactly what I expect from Sir Terry.

A brilliant read

Sir Terry Pratchett's Johnny Maxwell series is well worth listening to. Pratchett's humour shines through and pokes fun at real life in this time travelling masterpiece.

Cool Book

Our eldests first foray into the mind of Terry Pratchett and he loves it. In his 12yr old words "it's dead cool" He's listened to it many times now and never seems to tire of it.
