I especially like the drawings, which compliment the story and add to the humour especially the one of Edgar pretending to be a gargoyle haha. Also liked the toy Edgars I'd buy one!

This is a great book in which is about people who at the castle are dying due to seeing ghosts and although the family are running out of money they make a machine which will detect gold in order to try and find the hidden treasure within the castle.
I loved that this book was told from the raven's point of view of the story and although the characters within the story were not able to understand him he was a valuable part of the story. I thought that the twist at the end of the story with the g This is a great book in which is about people who at the castle are dying due to seeing ghosts and although the family are running out of money they make a machine which will detect gold in order to try and find the hidden treasure within the castle. I thought that the twist at the end of the story with the ghosts having had been accomplices of the ghost hunter who comes to the house was a great addition to the story as they tried to get the treasure for themselves.
As well as having a real ghost which was an ancestor of the family and help to get rid of the man. I was glad to see that this story was one that didn't mean you had to read the first book in order to understand what was happening and can be read as a stand alone book.

I also thought that the artwork throughout the book was beautiful and I thought that having the visuals as part of the book was a brilliant addition and one that helped create the look of all of the characters. Nov 29, Alja rated it really liked it. Just what I needed. But now on to more serious books.
Jun 12, M. Jones rated it really liked it. More nightmarish nonsense from the idiotic inhabitants of Otherhand Castle. And Edgar and Solstice, obviously. Nachdem Karlwin und sein Affe einen Geist gesehen habe und auch die Bediensteten einer nach dem anderen vor Schreck erstarren, geht auf Burg Otherhand der Schrecken um. Das Buch ist eine lustige und unterhaltsame Abenteuergeschichte. Der Schreibstil ist sehr angenehm und das Buch ist wunderbar und passend illustriert.
I read this story without knowing the first one. I did not know which one came first and when I saw this in the library I decided to take it home. I feel that the stories are self-contained and can be read in any particular order. I had no problems, whatsoever, to follow the story and so I assume it will be the same with the other books in the series. The raven Edgar narrates the story and let's the reader know about the family life with the Otherhands.
When a ghosts appear in the castle and servants are frozen in terror, a supposedly famous ghost hunter offers his help. The Otherhand children with help of their faithful raven Edgar are skeptical of the ghost hunter's capabilities and begin to solve the ghostly problems themselves. This book is an entertaining and funny adventure story which is enhanced by the narrative perspective of Edgar. The mixture of ghosts, adventure, and quirky family members lend charme to the series.
The writing is fluent and the book is as whimsically illustrated as the family members are quirky.

I really really enjoyed them. Eine unterhaltsame Abenteuergeschichte mit Geistern und skurrilen Familienmitgliedern. An entertaining adventure story with ghosts, quirky characters, and a loveable raven. I highly recommend it. De oude raaf Edgar is Wachter van Kasteel Anderhand. En dat is nogal een taak, want er gebeurt altijd wel iets in het kasteel van de familie Anderhand. In het eerste deel van De Mysteries van de Raaf ging het om een griezelig kasteelbeest dat de boel op stelten zette en nu is de beurt aan een spuh-spuh-spook!
