My Friend Walter

My Friend Walter

Remember Sir Walter Raleigh, the nobleman who laid his cloak in a puddle for Queen Elizabeth I to walk across? Bess gets a huge surprise when she meets his ghost and finds out that he’s her ancestor! And even though Sir Walter Raleigh was famous for his manners, Bess soon discovers that her new friend Walter is really rather naughty! How on earth will she introduce her ghostly new friend to her family – especially when he breaks her brother’s fishing rod, steals a horse and smokes cigars in her room?
