When they ring the bell at the house with the dusty windows and tarnished nameplate to inquire about the advertised "Saturday Person," Thruppence and Tim don't know what they're getting themselves into. A Saturday job sounds ideal! But had that nameplate been properly cleaned, Thruppence and Tim might not have been so keen to enter . . .

Pressured by the stern Minister Beeston from the Department of Economies, the Ministry of Ghosts has been given three months to prove the existence or nonexistence of ghosts, or else it will be shut down! As it seems that children are particularly magnetic to ghosts and supernatural beings, Thruppence and Tim are hired to join the ministry's ghost-catching team. And although neither of them is scared by talk of ghosts or monsters, they are unprepared for what they're about discover!

Filled with fun, humor, and twists and turns, this is the perfect book for anyone who loved Harry Potter and who is looking for something similar to Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book --just not quite as scary.
