About the author:
Nick Gifford has a doctorate in anthropology, specialising in ancient civilisations most people have never heard of.
He comes from a long line of explorers (uncannily, his family is much like the Bone family) and he'd love to have been around when it was okay for a chap to travel the world discovering lost cities and bagging the good bits for the British Museum. As it is, he's had to settle for writing about it all instead.
The Bone House Gang
There’s no such thing as ghosts. Everyone knows that.
Twelve-year-old Jools Bone lives in a run-down mansion, surrounded by a large collection of treasures gathered by his family of explorers and adventurers. When a TV crew arrives to film a new hands-on history series, Digging for Dead People, family friends the De Veres come to help, along with their three children, Ned, Helen and Billy.
As filming starts with the search for an ancient burial mound in the forest surrounding the Bones’ family home, the gang learn of the ancient legends surrounding the tomb of the lost prince, including tales of hauntings by the spirit of the prince himself. The children are much too rational to believe the stories: there's no such thing as ghosts, of course. But when one particularly grim legend threatens to come true, the kids are faced with a life and death rush to prevent history repeating itself.
A dark and wickedly funny story by “the king of children’s horror” (Sunday Express).
