Le fantôme des Canterville a fort à faire pour prouver à la famille Otis qu'il peut faire peur : entre les blagues des insupportables jumeaux et les pièges que lui tend le fils aîné, il n'a guère le temps de se montrer aussi terrifiant qu'il le souhaiterait... Savoureux pastiche des romans gothiques, Le Fantôme des Canterville est suivi de deux autres contes tout aussi cocasses et tendres : Le Sphinx sans secret et 1Le Millionnaire modèle.

Traduction de l' anglais : François Dupuigrenet Desroussilles.
