Nelly Rapp and the Spirit in a BottleMartin Widmark, illustrated by Christina Alvner
In Nelly Rapp and the Spirit in a Bottle, Valle has finally started in the same class as Nelly. Their wonderful teacher, Birgitta, is about to retire and tells them that she plans to build a laboratory in the garage to try and invent an environmentally-friendly fuel. However, when Nelly Rapp and Valle go up into the school’s attic, they stumble upon a bottle with a spirit inside it. The spirit
explains that it is proven that research about new fuels can end in horror and can even lead to someone living out their days trapped in a bottle in a school attic!
Nelly Rapp and the Spirit in a Bottle is Martin Widmark and Christina Alvner’s twentieth book about the monster agent Nelly Rapp. As usual, it’s scary at times, but funny and easy-to-read too.
