World-renowned cartoonist Seth returns with three new ghost stories for 2021.
When the Lady Gwendolen, age six, drops her doll down a staircase, her ladyship solemnly digs her fractured companion a grave. Luckily Mr Puckler, renowned doll doctor, thinks he can help-but when his daughter Else goes missing, he's not sure whose voice he hears calling to him in the night.
