Review & Competition: Watchman Willliam Ghost Detective book


Watchman William was a night watchman during the time of Good Queen Bess and is now a ghost at Hardleigh Manor. He is discovered in the attic by a young boy, Thomas, and with some inspiration from Sherlock Holmes, Thomas and William team up to investigate the strange goings on in & around Hardleigh Manor.

With stolen bicycles, pilfered marrows, sabotage at the hotel and more there's lots for them to investigate.

Each chapter is a story within itself and not too long that a child would lose interest. There are amusing illustrations throughout. While reading of their great adventures you will come across hints, suspect lists and clue summaries so that the reader can get involved with the story and become a detective, trying to solve the clues before William and Thomas.

The book is delightfully written and was thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my 7 year old daughter. Although she was capable of reading it I read it for her and it was lovely to spend some time together reading and going through the suspects, discussing who we thought the culprit could be and why. It had her listening intently as she tried to solve the 'crime'.
