Sean lives in Ballyyahoo, a tiny, magical town on the Wild Atlantic Way coast of Ireland. He loves all things Halloween, especially ghost stories.

Sean reads his ghostly stories every single night until his mother catches him reading with his torch and bans him from reading any more scary stories.

Angry, he runs all the way to his Grandad’s house, even though it’s dark, and even though it’s Halloween.
Sean isn’t scared of anything, at least not until his Grandad tells him the scariest story he’s ever heard. His family has been keeping a secret. A terrifying secret! The secret of an uncle he knew nothing about and the sad secret of a dancing girl and a terrifying haunted well.

This is one Halloween Sean will never forget.


Grace Jolliffe was born and brought up in Toxteth, Liverpool. Her mother was a Liverpudlian and her father an Irish immigrant who took the cattle boat with his brothers to follow the emigration trail to Liverpool in the 1950’s.

The family became returning emigrants when they moved back to Wicklow in Ireland when Grace was a teenager.

She now lives with her husband in Galway where she is busy writing and gardening. She writes for adults as well as children and enjoys both equally.

Her first novel, Piggy Monk Square, (for adults) was originally published by Tindal Street Press and was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writer’s prize.

Grace’s writing has been widely published in both magazines and newspapers, and she has also written for television and film. Her short films have won several awards at
film festivals.

Her children’s stories were regularly broadcast on RTE One, Ireland’s National Radio Station. Grace loves nature. Gardening and hill walking are two of her favourite pastimes. She would love to see more children enjoying themselves outdoors and always tries to encourage this in her stories.

Although this is a book for children, I really enjoyed it! This is a fun and charming ghost story for children set in the fictional Irish village of Ballyyahoo. Sean thinks it's boring living in Ballyyahoo, When an argument with his mother makes him run away from home at Halloween, he gets a little more than he bargained for. The phrase 'skeletons in your closet' takes on a completely new meaning as he discovers a deadly secret hidden within his own family, a secret more scary even than the stories in his favourite book, 'The Big Book of Gruesome Ghost Stories' which his mother has banned him from reading.

Don't buy your kids sweets this Halloween; if you want to treat them, buy them this book instead. It's a great, spooky yarn with a brave hero they can identify with, it's easy to read, and the atmosphere builds to a satisfying conclusion which they will just love, and so will you.
