Pity Sir Simon de Canterville, the poor Ghost of Canterville Chase! He killed his wife and was then starved to death by her brothers, but ever since then he's been happily haunting the family's mansion, always inventing fresh characters and costumes and blood-curdling shrieks.
Now along comes the Otis family, confident brash Americans who really aren't impressed by an old British ghost. What's a poor spirit to do? Only the young daughter of the family is sympathetic, and only she can help him solve his problem once and for all. Oscar Wilde's witty text and clever story-telling will make this one of your favorite humorous ghost stories.
