Twelve monkeys, a matador ghost and tigers in the garden – Miss Swift’s house has everything imaginable, except people. But why does she have three bedrooms ready for children?
Miss Swift lives happily alone in an extraordinary house. And she is not completely alone, she has twelve monkeys, some garden
tigers and one ghost to keep her company. But when a little boy appears on her doorstep, before Miss Swift even notices it Pekka and his two cousins are rummaging through her house, looking for their missing beast. And if there’s anything Miss Swift despises in this world it is children.
But why does the house have so many bedrooms? And why are the children feeling so home at Miss Swifts house? Is there
something she could have forgotten?
Miss Swift’s Weird and Wonderful House is a new fantasy story for middle-grade readers full of funny details and fast-paced events. Teemu Juhani’s illustrations bring the house and its eccentric characters to life.
