The Lonely Lighthouse of Elston-Fright: An Elston-Fright Tale by Reece Carter


Danger, darkness and a mysterious legacy unveiled in this magical seaside adventure by the bestselling author of A Girl Called Corpse.

Being a Lightkeeper is Very Serious Business.

Nobody in Elston-Fright believes in magic anymore. Well, nobody except for Flip Little, his nan and his friends: a girl called Corpse, a ghost called Girl and a very large spider called Simon.

But when Simon is spider-napped by ancient weather ghouls called the Poltergusts, Flip and his ghostly companions turn to the last Lightkeeper’s journals for answers. To rescue their friend, they will need to find and return the missing Light to the lighthouse, restoring its lost magic.

Only nothing in Elston-Fright is as it seems. Questions bubble up from the deep. Dark secrets come to light. And pretty soon, Flip and his friends learn that in order to save the future of Elston-Fright, they’ll first need to understand its past.
