Lockwood and Co is an exciting supernatural thriller series for readers 9+ written by Jonathan Stroud.

Now a major Netflix series - written and directed by Joe Cornish - the Lockwood and Co books follow psychic investigator Lucy Carlyle’s adventures investigating the spookiest and deadliest hauntings in London. 

Britain has been haunted by an epidemic of ghosts, who only children have the power to fight. Lucy Carlyle joins London’s smallest ghost-hunter agency, run by Anthony Lockwood and his assistant George Cubbins and, together with their tools of the trade and a thermos of tea, they take on the most terrifying ghosts and ghouls.
