and Pilgrims, misunderstood eleven-year-old Norman Babcock can
see and talk to ghosts. He has done so his whole life, but no one believes him. The whole town—including his parents—thinks he’s just weird. When a local tale of a witch who cursed the town three hundred years ago turns out to be true, it’s up to Norman to save everyone from Pilgrim zombies! On top of the zombies, he’ll have to take on the school bully, his boy-crazy teenage sister, and a very angry witch. This young ghoul whisperer finds his paranormal talents pushed to their otherworldly limits! Can Norman save the day?
