Book-a-Day 1: Favourite Book from Childhood

The Ghost of Thomas Kempe by Penelope Lively.  

I loved this story.  As a child, and a big old scaredy-cat this was a great book to read, my first real foray into the fantastical, and the supernatural.

I know the cover shown here and possibly my old copy, if I ever find it, notes it as a winner of the Carnegie Medal, I didn't realise that or what it meant until Mrs F of Fennell Books posted a list.

I gave a copy to my niece for Christmas a year or two back, but I'm not sure she's read it yet.
