AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Butter O'Bryan has been told there are ghosts on Howlers Beach, but are there?

'Howlers Beach, 1932

'Butter O'Bryan lives in a Very Small Castle with his father and his three aunts - Aunt Elephant, Aunt Cake and Aunt Peculiar. These aren't their real names, of course, just as Butter's father isn't really called 'Pongo'.

'And even though Butter is only twelve years old, and the grandson of one of Australia's most successful Jam Kings, he is very aware of the hardship many people are experiencing.

'Butter has been told there are ghosts at the nearby isolated Howlers Beach, but are there? And how can the children Butter plays cricket with on the beach simply vanish? Who are these children and why do they refuse his help?

'Butter is certain they're hiding a secret and he's determined to uncover it.'
