Beginning Monday 20 April, BBC Bitesize will publish daily online lessons for all ages. We'll also have a new dedicated TV channel full of learning content, podcasts on BBC Sounds and loads of educational video on iPlayer.
The main character and narrator of the story is Arthur Kipps. We see him as a contented man at the start of the novel, but he is haunted by memories of his past. As he narrates his ghostly tale, we are presented with the novel's cast of characters.
