Now it’s time for the fifth book about the fearless monster agent and her constant companion, London the basset hound.
Nelly realises all is not well with shopkeeper Conny Cruth when her dog, usually so fond of his food, won’t even look at the dog food on her shelves. Her suspicions are confirmed when a pile of tins rain down on her head, and the shopkeeper blames it on the fact that the shop is haunted. Monster agent number ten offers her services: a free ghost check!

The series about Monster agent Nelly Rapp and her dog London satisfies the need for delightfully scary stories for those who are just starting to read. The stories are ever so slightly scary - but mostly they’re delightful! Both press and public have been very enthusiastic about the previous books in the series.
