Ghost Writer

By Julia Jarman

A welcome reissue of this NASEN book about a dyslexic boy who must solve the riddle of the ghost at the village school.

Take a boy with a reading problem, a protective mother, and a village primary school set in its original 19th century buildings and there are all the ingredients for an accessible modern ghost story... Frankie likes his school even though his bullying teacher thinks that 'dyslexic' is another name for lazy. But who is the ghost boy who writes 'GET HER' on the blackboard in the original classroom - and what is his connection with the cupboard at the back? What really happened in the influenza epidemic that swept the village 70 years before - and who died in it?

  • Ghost Writer won the Stockport Schools' Book Award 2003, KS2 and was highly commended for both the Red House Children's Book Award and the NASEN Special Educational Needs Book Award.
  • A ghost story ideal for fans of the mysterious and spooky, Ghost Writer is printed in a dyslexic friendly font to make it more accessible to readers like Frankie.
  • Julia Jarman has been designated a 'significant author' for Bedfordshire, and will be working in local schools with this title.
