There are things that go bump in the night, even in the well-protected royal palace of Wrenly. Mysterious happenings have set Prince Lucas and his dragon, Ruskin, on edge. Curtains sway next to closed windows, temperatures drop for no reason, and strange lights glow in empty rooms. Lucas and Clara are sure there is a ghost haunting the castle halls. But will they find the ghost before the ghost finds them?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Kingdom of Wrenly chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

About the Author

Jordan Quinn grew up in a fairy tale castle in England. It had a spiral stone staircase, a moat, and a dungeon. As a child she liked to play hide-and-go-seek and ride her beloved horse, Prince Charming. When she wasn’t riding, she wrote stories about fairies, trolls, dragons, and wizards. Today Jordan lives on a ranch in California with her husband, son, and a golden retriever named Sir Toots-a-Lot.

Robert McPhillips has been involved in a wide variety of projects over the years—from illustrating greeting cards to animation, though he especially loves illustrating children’s books. Robert makes his home in North Devon, England, with his wife, Sam.

A Ghost in the Castle Bumps in the Night
Oooooooooo . . . !

OOOOOOOOOO . . . !

Creeeeeeak!

The door to Prince Lucas’s room whined as it opened. A wave of cold air swept into his chamber. Ruskin, Lucas’s pet scarlet dragon, lifted his ears. Then—CLUMP! The door banged shut in the darkness. Lucas gasped and sat straight up in bed.



“What was that?” he whispered, staring at the closed door. Ruskin shook his head and whimpered.

The prince looked at the moon shimmering on the water outside the palace. His curtains blew gently in the breeze.

“It must have been a gust of wind,” the prince reasoned. But just as he said this, the strange, spooky sound began again.

Oooooooooo . . . !

OOOOOOOOOO . . . !

Ruskin jumped onto Lucas’s bed.

“Somebody’s awake,” Lucas said softly. “Let’s go find out who it is.” The prince slid out of bed, and Ruskin followed.

The prince slowly opened the door. The light from the moon was just enough for him to see down the passageway. They tiptoed through the first arch. Then they heard the eerie wail again.

Oooooooooo . . . !

OOOOOOOOOO . . . !

Ruskin scrambled and hid beside a decorative suit of armor. His head peeked out.
