Sean loves Halloween and he loves ghost stories even more. Sean’s not afraid of anything - until his Grandad tells him the terrifying story of his disappearing uncle and the terrible secret of Dancer’s Well!
When you buy a Ballyyahoo book you get to visit the world of Ballyyahoo website directly from the eBook - all free!
The site is packed with stories, photographs, background information about the characters, animals, nature, and of course, the magic of Ballyyahoo.
Sean lives in Ballyyahoo, a tiny, magical town on the Wild Atlantic Way coast of Ireland. He loves all things Halloween, especially ghost stories.
Sean reads his ghostly stories every single night until his mother catches him reading with his torch and bans him from reading any more scary stories.
Angry, he runs all the way to his Grandad’s house, even though it’s dark, and even though it’s Halloween.
Sean isn’t scared of anything, at least not until his Grandad tells him the scariest story he’s ever heard. His family has been keeping a secret. A terrifying secret! The secret of an uncle he knew nothing about and the sad secret of a dancing girl and a terrifying haunted well.
This is one Halloween Sean will never forget.

Grace Jolliffe was born and brought up in Toxteth, Liverpool. Her mother was a Liverpudlian and her father an Irish immigrant who took the cattle boat with his brothers to follow the emigration trail to Liverpool in the 1950’s.

The family became returning emigrants when they moved back to Wicklow in Ireland when Grace was a teenager.

She now lives with her husband in Galway where she is busy writing and gardening. She writes for adults as well as children and enjoys both equally.

Her first novel, Piggy Monk Square, (for adults) was originally published by Tindal Street Press and was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writer’s prize.

Grace’s writing has been widely published in both magazines and newspapers, and she has also written for television and film. Her short films have won several awards at
film festivals.

Her children’s stories were regularly broadcast on RTE One, Ireland’s National Radio Station. Grace loves nature. Gardening and hill walking are two of her favourite pastimes. She would love to see more children enjoying themselves outdoors and always tries to encourage this in her stories.
