Cozy Spotlight on Childish Spirits by Rob Keeley

Today I’m pleased to host Rob Keeley’s new children’s book, Childish Spirits. Rob is particularly thrilled to share an audio clip from his book with you as well. After listening to it, I can fully understand why. Sally Millest’s voice certainly does catch the attention and brilliantly evokes the creepy feels! Check it out.

When Ellie and her family move into Inchwood Manor, Ellie quickly discovers strange things are happening. Who is the mysterious boy at the window? What secrets lie within the abandoned nursery? Who is the woman who haunts Ellie’s dreams – and why has she returned to the Manor, after more than a century? Ellie finds herself entangled in a Victorian mystery of ghosts and tunnels and secret documents – and discovers that life all those years ago isn’t so different from the world she knows today…
