The Supermarket Ghost

Written by Gordon Snell

Illustrated by Bob Byrne

The Supermarket Ghost Synopsis

It seems like another boring summer for Maria, that is until she meets Davy. Did Davy really appear out of nowhere and why can't anyone else see him? Is he linked to the tragic accident that happened twenty years ago? And are all the dark rumours about Paddy Breen true? Reluctant at first, Maria agrees to help Davy on his mission of revenge. She soon finds her world turned upside down as she learns more about Davy's past and Paddy's secret. An exciting and unpredictable ghost story suitable for younger readers.

The Supermarket Ghost Press Reviews

'A simple, sweet story . . . an ideal book for young readers to undertake on their own' * Inis Magazine * 'A thriller for younger readers' * The Sunday Tribune * At 12 chapters, it is short enough to appeal to reluctant readers from second to third class. Children will root for Davy and Maria and boo the villain, evoking questions and discussion about revenge and forgiveness. There is also an historical element to the story which may inspire some teachers to plan a drama lesson that explores the skills of working as an historian through the lens continuity and change * InTouch Magazine, Stuart Purcell *
