Ever since Gafferty Sprout' s last adventure, she' s been VERY GOOD. No more finding lost Smidgen clans, no more pudding fights, definitely no more GHOSTS. She knows there' s another clan still out there - The Burrow - and maybe they know the secrets of the MAGICAL knife that saved her from the ghosts. But it' ll have to wait until she' s less . . . grounded. Then a strange Smidgen steals her knife and sets out for The Burrow, and there' s nothing for it. Gafferty has to follow. But the Smidgens of The Burrow aren' t the new friends Gafferty expected, and soon the Smidgens are in BIG, BIG trouble. The second book in a funny, magical adventure series for 7+ readers who love Terry Pratchett, Max and the Millions and The Borrowers.

Don' t put books in the washing machine though . . . * Tom Fletcher on THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY GHOST * Humour pervades every page, with jokes appearing at the perfect place and with fabulous timing * Bookbag on THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY GHOST * A thoroughly satisfying and entertaining story, a mix of adventure, comedy and magic . . .
