The first in a jaunty new series for younger girls told in comic-strip featuring the delightfully eccentric Glister Butterworth – girl-magnet for the weird and the unusual. Strange things happen around Glister Butterworth. (Frightfully inconsiderate it is, too.) Occasionally the strange things begin with a knock at the door … or sometimes a nice cup of tea. When a very rare teapot arrives on the Butterworth’s doorstep (with no name, and no address) Glister and her father raise a slight eyebrow, but waste no time putting the kettle on.
You see, it’s not uncommon for the unexpected and the unexplained at Chilblain Hall, and there’s always room for tea. Having said that, haunted tea is really quite a different story. And indeed it was… As Glister helps the ghost in the teapot to fulfil his very final wish, she starts to uncover another of Chilblain Hall’s surprising and charming secrets.
