About the book

Meet Malice Morbid Malign. She’s from Underland, land of sorcery, spooks and sculduggery. She and her family live in Topside and mischief is their business. From Malignant House, Ma and Pa run the Malign Haunting agency tormenting Topside families and their homes. After all, it is their responsibility to maintain respectable levels of ghastly amongst the Topsiders. And as Underland representatives, the Maligns hate books, they hate bathing and they especially HATE helping.

The problem is, Malice is the exact opposite of her unpleasant, smelly, mischievous family. And when grandad ghosts start mysteriously disappearing, including her own beloved grandad, Malice has no choice but to help rescue him. Malice partners up with Uncle Vexation, Private Investigator of Underland and outcast of the Malign family.
