Molly Thompson and the Crypt of the Blue Moon

By Nick Tomlinson

The scariest legends just got scarier!

After facing down the ghouls of Howlfair, young historian Molly Thompson is taking a break from solving mysteries in the world's scariest town. But then Country Wonders magazine sends two journalists to write a feature on Howlfair and they want Molly to be their tour guide. For Molly it's a chance to help save Howlfair's flagging tourist industry - and her family's struggling guesthouse. But there's something creepy about the visiting journalists, who seem a little too interested in a local legend about a phantom known as the Silentman. They want Molly to help them find a hidden crypt that was never meant to be opened - and they won't take no for an answer... Cue a madcap horror adventure with secret tombs, flying skeletons, a wig-stealing cat and a phantom whose touch spells madness as Molly Thompson faces her most spine-chilling challenge yet!

Customer reviews


'A story of friendship, family and humour; all wrapped in chilling, spooky, weird, imaginative brilliance make this one of the best books this year (which itself has been pretty spooky and weird.) And now I find myself waiting with bated breath for the next exciting adventure of Molly Thompson…and looking suspiciously for ghouls.' Fallen Star Stories Blog
