Angus Rose | 2 comments What I remember of this book is that the world had been taken over by ghosts whose only weak point was that they would disappear or were dispersed by, wood. There were only two sources of wood left - one was a wooden wand/stick possessed by the hero, and the other was the last standing tree which was heavily guarded by ghosts. The only other character I can recall is a rather large one who suffered with bad feet! I read this book when I was at middle school - 1977-1980 - and I have a feeling it was a relatively new book then.

Thanks

Angus

It was the eleventh day of the school holidays and Rebecca was bored. But events take a dramatic turn for the better (or worse) when she finds herself transported to a distant planet whose people are terrorized by jelly-like monsters called Ghosts.

This post explains more about the plot:
