About the Author

Angie Sage grew up in the Thames Valley, London and Kent. She went to art school in Leicester where she studied Graphic Design and Illustration. After college she started illustrating books and then progressed to writing, first toddler books, later chapter books and then the Septimus Heap books. She lives overlooking a creek in Cornwall and loves sailing her boat, Muriel, and all things to do with the sea. She has two grown-up daughters.


Gr 2-4-Araminta Spookie doesn't live the life of a typical child. Vampires and ghosts are the norm around her home. When Araminta realizes that Sir Horace's 500th birthday is coming up, she is determined to make an appropriate fuss. And what would be better than the perfect present-a sword she has seen hidden in a cavern? Araminta and Wanda set out to claim the sword with all the right intentions, but find themselves caught in a trap. Luckily they have friends in other worldly places. Angie Sage, of Septimus Heap fame, has written a lightweight, fun story ( Katherine Tegen Books, 2006) with just the right amount of rib-tickling humor, tongue-in-cheek whimsy, and giggly suspense. Katherine Kellgren reads with a gentle English accent and a smile. Fans of the first book, My Haunted House (Katherine Tegen Books, 2006; Recorded Books, 2006) will demand this sequel, and uninitiated listeners will delight in a new series.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
