Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In the seventh and final installment of the popular 43 Old Cemetery Road series, twelve-year-old Seymour Hope has inherited a castle in Loch Ness, Scotland. It could be the perfect summer vacation spot for Seymour and his parents, Olive C. Spence and Ignatius B. Grumply. But Iggy wants nothing to do with the castle. Why? Because it was owned by his uncle Ian, a world-famous psychiatrist and the world's worst punster. So Iggy stays home to write, and Seymour and Olive set off for Scotland--each with a secret.

Twelve-year-old Seymour Hope and his ghostly "mother" Olive go to Scotland to claim a castle inherited from Ignatius Grumply's punster uncle, Ian, but while they tend an aged tortoise and face an unscrupulous developer, Iggie deals with Ian's ghost and an inept insurance agent.

Horn Book Review

Seymour and his (ghost) "mom" Olive go to Scotland to claim his inheritance: a castle from Grumply's uncle Ian. Grumply never liked his uncle's incessant jokes, which only continue to plague him when Ian's ghost pays a visit. This seventh book continues the series' clever narrative format of letters, drawings, newspaper articles, and more; fans will enjoy this pun-filled trip across the Atlantic. (c) Copyright 2015.
