It takes place in Valing Manor, where the only beings are ghosts who make sure that no one comes into their domain. They have a great time when a new owner tries to move in, using their scariest tactics to frighten any visitors away. However, they hit a snag when they meet a young orphan boy called Toby, who can see and hear them. When they discover that someone is trying to kill Toby, the ghosts use all their haunting skills to protect him.
