Terror Town by Marcus Sedgwick
Orion ISBN 9781444005271

Elf Girl and Raven Boy, along with their friend Rat, are speeding across hills and fields on a magic flying carpet towards Terror Town. They have the Tears of the Moon but they must find the Singing Sword in order to save the world from the Goblin King. Zombies and werewolves are roaming the streets of Terror Town but there are also other scary things - and people - to contend with while attempting to complete their mission. This is a fantastic story and a real page-turner of a book. If you enjoy it as much as I did you will want to look out for the next part of Elf Girl and Raven Boy's travels.

Mountwood School for Ghosts by Toby Ibbotson
Macmillan ISBN 9781447271000

Ghosts aren't what they used to be, according to one 473 year old teacher! So she and her spectral friends set up Mountwood School for Ghosts to promote excellence in haunting. Two young humans Daniel and Charlotte meet the likeable ghost Percy and when they realise that problems in their neighbourhood (created by humans) are seemingly insuperable they enlist the help of the phantoms of Mountwood. This is a thrilling and imaginatively-written story that will have you on the edge of your seat. It is action-packed and full of humour.
