Te la senti di trascorrere la notte in una casa infestata? Sei sensibile ai fenomeni soprannaturali? Temi ciò che si potrebbe nascondere nel buio? Hai abbastanza fegato per affrontarlo? Benvenuto alla Lockwood & Co., la caccia ai fantasmi è davvero il nostro pane quotidiano. «Rimarrete svegli a leggere fino a notte fonda, poi però dovrete dormire con la luce accesa. Stroud è un genio». Rick Riordan, autore di Percy Jackson e gli dei dell’Olimpo «Con la stessa straordinaria capacità immaginativa che fece della saga di Bartimeus un successo mondiale, Stroud riesce a destreggiarsi tra il macabro e la letteratura per ragazzi». The New York Times «Il romanzo è davvero inquietante e carico di suspense, con personaggi intriganti e dialoghi eccezionali, il tutto reso con l’umorismo pungente di Stroud». The Guardian

Edit 03/25 : Reread with my teacher glasses... Well now, this is a success :) Let's see what the kids think now! Why an experiment?
