Hamish and Mable are Humphrey's parents. Hamish is "the Gliding Kilt" ~ A Scottish ghost killed fighting in the Battle of Otterburn in which he lost both his legs, and was run through by a sword
Based on the popular children's book by Eva Ibboston, The Great Ghost Rescue is a cross between Harry Potter and The Addams Family. In our story you meet Humphrey, a small ghost with a big problem. His family has lost their home, and they're off to find a new haunting ground. But soon Humphrey and his parents discover that ghosts all over the country are being turned out as dark castles are converted to cheerful tourist hotels, condos and track houses. Humphrey knows something must be done and when the time comes he “rises” to the occasion with “frightening” success. Very funny, sometimes scary, but always charming The Great Ghost Rescue is an inversion of life as we know it. In this world the ghosts are our heroes and the living, well some of them anyway, are the people we should fear. Odd Lot International
