The Canterville Ghost : The Graphic Novel

The Canterville Ghost

“Quick, quick,” cried the Ghost, “or it will be too late.”

The American Otis family get more than they bargain for when they move into the English stately home of Canterville Chase. The ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville has roamed the halls and corridors for 300 years, ever since he murdered his wife there; but now this new family has arrived to pester him!

As you would expect from Oscar Wilde, this charming story is full of humour and wit, dealing with a culture clash between “modern America” and “traditional Britain” in the late 1800s. In this wonderful tale, Wilde cleverly creates the first gothic horror comedy.
