No matter what hour,
she lurked looking sour,
be it midnight or mid-afternoon.
Her dresses were shabby,
her mood always crabby.

Her name was Miss Annabel Spoon.


Life is cursed for the people of the village of Twee. The ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon haunts their every waking hour and they've had enough! But then one day, the brave and practical young Herbert Kettle has the most extraordinary idea...

      Comments about The Ghost of Miss Annabel Spoon:

      A little spooky but very well written.

      I find that my daughter isn't quite as interested in this one due to her age. The images are of grey tones and doesn't retain her focus. Also, the story is a bit longer than other Blabey books.

      Thou I'm confident that it will be a favourity when she's a little older.

        A very funny, well written book by Aaron Blabey. The illustrations are fantastic with lots of very funny details, and a great little moral of kindness. Entertaining for kids and adults alike.

        Aaron Blabey

        Aaron Blabey's life doesn't make any sense.

        He is best known for his well-loved children's picture books for which he has won many awards including a Children's Book Council of Australia - Book of the Year Award, a NSW Premiers Literary Award for Children's Literature, a KOALA Award, a YABBA Award and a Children's Peace Literature Award. He's also been the National Literacy Ambassador and is a proud ambassador for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

        But dig a little deeper and his past gets quite shady.

        He spent 13 years as an actor appearing in numerous plays, TV shows and films. He was regularly cast opposite proper actors like Hugh Jackman, Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, Bryan Brown, Joel Edgerton and Ben Mendelsohn, all of whom were too kind to ever point out that his own acting was "just…awful", as he describes it today. To his continuing bewilderment though, he did once win an ACCTA Award (AFI) for Best Actor, a fact that cannot be adequately explained.

        To complicate matters, he worked for a time as a staff writer at a major global advertising agency where he "learned a great deal and wished for death every single day", before spending a couple of years attempting to teach 'Creative Thinking' at a prominent Sydney design college. Furthermore, he's exhibited his art in various galleries, spent some time as a grape picker, worked in a video store and - astonishingly - once modeled clothes in a glossy weekend supplement.

        He lives these days in a beautiful town in the Blue Mountains with his preposterously short wife and their two gorgeous boys, where he creates books, listens to his beloved vinyl record collection through killer 70s speakers and celebrates loudly every fifteen minutes that one of his all-time, top-ten heroes - Nick Cave - recently chose to record one of his books.
