The Spilled Ink

Fingers wrap themselves around an open door – bony fingers that belong to a wraith-like ghost. The door belongs to the Study, and what sounds like a gunshot causes the ghost to disappear.

Knowing a clue beckons you in the Study, you run to the door and open it. The handle is dead cold, but you go inside regardless.

What appears to be a man is hunched over the desk, scribbling frantically. He knocks over a pot of ink.

Play the video to hear the reading challenge.

In order to collect the spilled ink, you must read a book that features ghosts.

Once you have completed your reading challenge, be sure to fill in this form with the book you read! Alternatively, if you work in a school, then fill in this form instead.
