Ghoul School
by Vibha Batra.

HarperCollins. Pages 172. Rs 250

Ever heard of a school for ghosts? Well, there is one, and it is now time for 10-year-old Siliguri to join it. He’s learning how to scare the living daylights out of humans, haunt creaky, crumbly old buildings and walk with his feet turned backwards. But all he wants is to become an entertainer. Befriending a human isn’t what would have helped matters. To make it worse, the most-feared ghoul of all times is on the loose. Will Siliguri ever have his heart’s desire?
