The resident ghoul at Canterville Manor gets the shock of his life. After centuries of scaring people to death, he gets his comeuppance in the form of an All-American family. At first, it seems only a matter of time before the ghost sends the family packing, however he seems to completely undermine the presence of the two terrible twins who among other things throw pillows at him and trip him up in the hallway.

With his reputation and ego in tatters the once famous Canterville ghost worries whether his time is up.

A humorous take on the ghost story, which takes the expected norms of the gothic genre and turns it upside down. A great short read!
