A wonderful read for all ages April 21 2015
By Johanna Draper Carlson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Glister gets a mysterious teapot in the mail. When she uses it, the ghost of writer Phillip Bulwark-Stratton appears. He’s mad that his reputation has been damaged and his works forgotten, so he enlists Glister as his secretary to finish his last book.

The story is creative and funny and full of amusing details, all beautifully drawn with emotion and excellent storytelling. The vocabulary can be pleasantly challenging, demonstrating a love for words that equals the images. I love Dad leaving Glister to make tea while he heads out to tackle the local troll under the bridge with a butterfly net. Then, when Phillip doesn’t consider how much Glister needs a break from the typewriter, Dad calls up, “I’ve fed your tea to the troll.” Punchline!

Then there’s the difference in their approaches to story construction — Glister keeps trying to introduce people to take care of the novel’s lead character, while Phillip turns everything into increased tragedy. And when she decides to reclaim charge of her own life, Glister demonstrates her creativity, willingness to ask for help, and imagination in finding different ways to solve her problem. Overall, it’s a wonderful read and a terrific book to share.
A series well worth reading, especially for the young and young-at-heart Aug. 6 2015

Adorable! I really enjoyed this light romp. Touchy houses that take off when offended. Delightful!
