School Library Journal:
"The wealthy Sweet family moves into their new rental home. The three unruly children quickly discover that they are sharing their quarters with three eccentric ghosts. By rights the house should belong to Miss Amy Steadings, best friend of the recently deceased owner, Mercia Porterhouse; however, no one can find Mercia's will. The ghosts are subjected to all sorts of indignities by the noisy, precocious children, who are not the least bit frightened by the resident spooks. In fact, the ghosts are more than a little intimidated by the antics of the children. The Sweet children find the will and move out so that Amy can assume her role as caretaker of the ghosts.
This is a lightweight, cleverly told tale with a distinct British style, enhanced
by a number of amusing drawings that enable readers to see what the ghosts actually
look like. The doty parents play endless games of backgammon and remain oblivious
to the uproar going on around them. ... Most young people will enjoy the story for
what it is: a humorous romp with some non-threatening spirits. This is one ghost
story that will evoke chuckles, not shivers."
