Dixie O’Day and the Haunted House


Percy, Dixie O’Day’s loyal companion, craves an easy life, with comfortable slippers, warm baths, and cosy holidays. However, despite all his best laid plans, he’s off with Dixie, who’s taken to the idea of camping in ‘ a simple’ way. Unfortunately, this involves a private field, heavy rain, and a strangely deserted house…..

Lots of fun is to be had in ‘Dixie O’Day in the Haunted House’, the fifth title of this inestimable series from Shirley Hughes and Clara Vulliamy. There is sympathy too, for dear Percy. The Dixie O’Day series is tremendous for new, growing in confidence and commitment, readers, and highly recommended by Bookwagon.


Dixie O’Day and the Haunted House

Shirley Hughes & Clara Vulliamy

(Red Fox)

Dixie O’ Day and the Haunted House is the fifth title in a beloved series for newer chapter book series. By this stage, it seems as though we’ve realised Percy’s tolerance. In this outing, loyal Percy needs his readers’ support. For Percy is dog tired. Thereafter, all he wants is to rest his paws, put on his slippers and take forty winks. Somewhere nice, mind. However, Dixie has other ideas…
It seems that Dixie has a notion to camp! However, it’s not camping with responsible planning or packing, but something rather ‘simple’. Percy feels apprehensive and for good reason! We watch Dixie lead him up the garden path, and into a field and… It seems that we’re about to enjoy spooky, funny, cow-scented goings on. However, this is not what Percy signed up for. Furthermore, does Dixie realise the danger and will he step up to the plate (whatever that might involve?) What is happening in this field?
Dixie O’Day and the Haunted House is guaranteed reading gold for Bookwagon’s newer readers! Other titles we’d recommend in this range would include Clara Vulliamy’s paw-lickingly good Marshmallow Pie the Cat Superstar
