This is the second in a fun new series for younger girls told in comic-strip featuring the delightfully eccentric Glister Butterworth - girl-magnet for the weird and the unusual. Strange things happen around Glister Butterworth (Frightfully inconsiderate it is, too). Occasionally, the strange things begin with a knock at the door...or sometimes a careless word or two. Chilblain Hall may well be a little tumbledown, have creaky timbers and a certain unpredictable air, but it still has feelings. Just like you or me. So it's quite easy to see how the Butterworths' home got in a huff, uprooted and left after overhearing Mr Swarkstone - a man with his eye firmly on the prize for best Bonny Village - call it some pretty dreadful and damning names. Now homeless, lonely and bored without Chilblain Hall, Glister must find a way to persuade her dearest home and friend back to where it belongs.
