Publication [ ]
The novel was originally published on July 1st, 2004 by The Bodley Head in hardback, but since has been published in paperback (published by Red Fox ) and reprinted in a new-style cover.
The book was also released in the U.S. as The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch due to the term 'spook' possibly being viewed as a racist term towards the African- American population.
Editions [ ]
- First Edition : The original 2004 edition had a worn out leather look. Later after new editions had been made, this edition is considered a collectors edition.
- 2005 New Art Edition : The 2005 paperback edition had a new illustration with the caption below the title saying "Is he brave enough?".
- Seventh Son Paperback : A new release of the book released in 2014 to help promote the Seventh Son film. "The Series That Inspired The Movie: Seventh Son" is printed at the bottom with Delaney's name at the top and the words "Born To Fight The Dark" on the left side of the cover.
- U.S. Edition : Due to the fact that "spook" could be considered a racial slur in the United States, an edition titled The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch, was published, with new cover art.

Warning: Not to be read after dark
"The Spook 's trained many, but precious few completed their time," Mam said, "and those that did aren't a patch on him. They're flawed or weak or cowardly. They walk a twisted path taking money for accomplishing little. So there's only you left now, son. You're the last chance. The last hope."
Thomas Ward is the seventh son of a seventh son and has been apprenticed to the local Spook . The job is hard, the Spook is distant and many apprentices have failed before him. Somehow Thomas must learn how to exorcise ghosts , contain witches and bind boggarts . But when he is tricked into freeing Mother Malkin , the most evil witch in the County , the horror begins...

The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney - review
This book is very good. It has plenty of action, a complicated plot and it makes you want to read more. It's different to most books but also similar, with the same sort of style to some famous fantasy books. The basic plot is about Tom Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son, who is taken on to be the Spook's apprentice. The Spook protects the country from witches, boggarts, ghasts and ghosts but, despite doing all that, is feared by people and often lonely. Tom encounters a lot of trouble from witches in this book as he gets his training from the Spook. Sometimes, I thought the book was about to end as there had just been a big face-off, but then something else happened which lengthened the story. This was good and gave you plenty of surprises. However, just when I wanted the book to carry on, it ended! This will certainly be a series I would like to keep reading. The whole concept of boggarts and witches was very different so the book would be a great read for people who like fantasy. The book was also scary – anyone with an active imagination may easily conjure up the creatures in it, so horror fans would also like it. I would recommend this book to children aged 10 and over. I would rate the book 9/10.

Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Frankelda’s Book Of Spooks’ On Max, A Stop-Action Animated Series Where A Phantom Author Tells Stories About Kids And Their Fears
Where to Stream:
- Frankelda's Book of Spooks
Where To Watch ‘Once Upon A Studio’ Full Short To Celebrate Disney 100
Stream it or skip it: ‘once upon a studio’ on disney+, a heavily nostalgic self-promotional short celebrating disney’s animation studio, robin williams’ iconic genie resurrected — without ai — for disney’s ‘once upon a studio’ centennial short, is ‘dragon ball z: battle of gods’ streaming on netflix, hulu or crunchyroll.
Frankelda’s Book Of Spooks is a stop motion animated series created in Mexico in 2021; it has five stories about kids who wanted more out of their lives and got it, but at a very high price. An English-dubbed version has landed on Max , just in time for spooky season.
FRANKELDA’S BOOK OF SPOOKS : STREAM IT OR SKIP IT?
Opening Shot: A spider named Proscutes (Luis Leonardo Suarez) tries to write something and is frustrated. A feathered man he calls “Your Highness” tells the spider “There’s no time,” and the spider says, “Let the writer come.”
The Gist: Frankelda (Abby Trott) is a writer whose spirit is trapped in a big house, along with her book-shaped friend, whom she calls Herneval (Arturo Mercado Jr.). She wants to tell the viewer tales about children who wanted things in life and ended up getting much more than they expected. Herneval isn’t sure she should be doing it, but it’s the only way for her to get out of this house she’s trapped in.
The first story is about a boy named Nemo (Barbara Goodson), who is dissatisfied with his life of doing chores and homework. One day a gnome (Dave Boat) comes out from under Nemo’s bed and offers to do all the work for him, as long as he gives the gnome his name. Nemo does just that, and is enjoying his freedom until he realizes that he and the gnome are trading lives.
The second story is about a shy girl named Magali (Trott) who just wanted to fit in at her school; she finds a Halloween costume she thinks will be great, but it’s hideously expensive. She decides to sell Day of the Dead bread to make some money, and when three old ladies see her, and buy her rolls, they ask her to make 13 more, but under specific conditions. When she goes to deliver the rolls, she walks into the house and finds that the women are witches.
In the last episode, a young writer named Francisca (Natalia Popa) finds that no one wants to read or publish books from women (the story takes place in the 1860s). A young, feathered boy (Liam Martinez) reads her stories and loves them. But when they meet again when they both become young adults, he has an offer for her that will help her get her stories read and heard. Oh, and by now, she’s decided to write under the name of Frankelda.
What Shows Will It Remind You Of? Frankelda’s Book Of Spooks is a little bit Coraline and a little bit The Nightmare Before Christmas .
Our Take: Created by Arturo Ambriz Rendón and Roy Ambriz Rendón, Frankelda’s Book Of Spooks is a visual feast of stop motion animation , and just scary enough to make its intended audience (see below for what that audience is) jump and get creeped out.
Yes, the show is more or less an anthology, but the overarching story of just why Frankelda is telling these stories after centuries trapped in that house pulls the viewer through the five 14-17 minute episodes.
What we appreciated about the individual stories is that they don’t have happy endings. Just because the show is geared towards kids doesn’t mean that its stories have to be happy and positive. They’re very much cautionary tales, where kids get exactly what they want but at a very high price. Maybe they’re not exactly lessons you want to teach your kids, but as stories designed to spook them, the endings strike exactly the right tone.
The final episode, which explains Frankelda and Herneval’s entrapment, is a bit confusing given the first scene of the series, but it’s still very well done, and puts a nice bow on the first of what we hope is multiple seasons.
What Age Group Is This For?: Because of the scary elements, we’re thinking that the show’s TV-Y7 rating is just about right on the money.
Parting Shot: Over the credits of each episode, we see how the episode was made, from storyboards to the creation of the figurines and sets.
Sleeper Star: All of the artists who work on the show, as well as the people who shot the stop-action animation, are the stars of this show. We also give a lot of credit to the voice actors doing the English dub of this series (it was created in Mexico and originally voiced in Spanish) for giving their own spin on the characters.
Most Pilot-y Line: None we could find.
Our Call: STREAM IT. Frankelda’s Book Of Spooks is not only visually stunning, but its stories do an effective job of creeping out the kids who are its target audience.
Joel Keller ( @joelkeller ) writes about food, entertainment, parenting and tech, but he doesn’t kid himself: he’s a TV junkie. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Slate, Salon, RollingStone.com , VanityFair.com , Fast Company and elsewhere.

The Spook’s Apprentice
Book No: 01 of 13 Next
Thomas Ward, the seventh son of a seventh son, has been apprenticed to the local spook, John Gregory. The job is hard and many apprentices have failed, over a third dying in training.
Somehow Tom must learn how to exorcize ghosts, contain witches and bind boggarts. But when he is tricked into freeing Mother Malkin, the most powerful and evil witch in the County, the horror begins…
“The Spook’s trained many but precious few completed their time,” Mam said, “and those that did aren’t a patch on him. They’re weak or cowardly. They walk a twisted path taking money for accomplishing little. So there’s only you left now, son. You’re the last chance. The last hope. Someone has to do it. Someone has to stand against the dark. And you’re the only one who can.”
“You see, lad, Mother Malkin will be what we call ‘wick’,” said the Spook. “It’s an old County word that you’re no doubt familiar with. Just as a head of hair can be wick with lice, her dead body is now wick with her wicked spirit. It’ll be heaving like a bowl of maggots and she’ll crawl, slither or drag herself towards her chosen victim.”
The Spook’s Apprentice’ was in development for almost two years. It began as a short story of about twelve thousand words. Later, as it grew, Barry Cunningham of ‘Chicken House’ (the editor who signed JK Rowling) considered it for publication. He gave me some excellent advice but it wasn’t until 2002 that it was finally taken for publication by Charlie Sheppard of Random House Children’s Books. She had a clear vision of how to develop the story further and that first book was now well on its way to becoming a series.

Glad to hear my books helped you during a difficult time. I have always found reading a great comfort and it was my love of reading that inspired me to write.
This is a great series and I have really enjoyed reading all of your books! The Spooks series is my personal favorite book series of all time! I hope you continue to expand The Spooks world. Cheers from New Zealand – Bob
The Spook’s Apprentice takes a great part in who I am now. This was my favorite book in my childhood, and still is. I read it again and again.But I still remember the first time I’ve read the book, and I still remember every single detail . Well, it is pretty normal given how many times I’ve read the book. I really can’t tell you how grateful I am to you for this incredible writing. Thank you Joseph. Great book and I hope you live even better life. If that’s possible.
I remember picking up The Spooks Apprentice from the book corner when I was in Year 4, and I was so hooked that I tore through the rest of the series. I recall getting into trouble for reading your books through the night- according to my parents it wasn’t good for my eyes (no glasses yet!). It feels like I grew up with Tom and Alice. Even now, at 21, I hold these books close to my heart. Thanks for making something that has delivered joy to so many kids and adults everywhere! You’re awesome Joseph!

If you want to be a writer, keep a notebook. You need to jot down every idea for a story that comes into your head. Don’t think to censor your ideas either! The idea is new and you are too close to it to judge its value. Ten years later it may strike you in a totally different way. I estimate that out of every thirty ideas I jotted down into my notebooks, twenty-nine proved to be worthless. The thirtieth had the potential to be developed into a novel or short story. The bad news was that quite often I found out that somebody had written something similar already!

A Seventh Son
When the Spook arrived, the light was already beginning to fail. It had been a long, hard day, and I was ready for my supper.
"You're sure he's a seventh son?" he asked. He was looking down at me and shaking his head doubtfully.
"And you were a seventh son, too?"
Dad nodded again and started stamping his feet impatiently, splattering my breeches with droplets of brown mud and manure. The rain was dripping from the peak of his cap. It had been raining for most of the month. There were new leaves on the trees, but the spring weather was a long time coming.
My dad was a farmer and his father had been a farmer, too, and the first rule of farming is to keep the farm together. You can't just divide it up among your children; it would get smaller and smaller with each generation until there was nothing left. So a father leaves his farm to his eldest son. Then he finds jobs for the rest. If possible, he tries to find each a trade.
He needs lots of favors for that. The local blacksmith is one option, especially if the farm is big and he's given the blacksmith plenty of work. Then it's odds on that the blacksmith will offer an apprenticeship, but that's still only one son sorted out.
I was his seventh, and by the time it came to me all the favors had been used up. Dad was so desperate that he was trying to get the Spook to take me on as his apprentice. Or at least that's what I thought at the time. I should have guessed that Mam was behind it.
She was behind a lot of things. Long before I was born, it was her money that had bought our farm. How else could a seventh son have afforded it? And Mam wasn't County. She came from a land far across the sea. Most people couldn't tell, but sometimes, if you listened very carefully, there was a slight difference in the way she pronounced certain words.
Still, don't imagine that I was being sold into slavery or something. I was bored with farming anyway, and what they called the town was hardly more than a village in the back of beyond. It was certainly no place that I wanted to spend the rest of my life. So in one way I quite liked the idea of being a spook; it was much more interesting than milking cows and spreading manure.
It made me nervous though, because it was a scary job. I was going to learn how to protect farms and villages from things that go bump in the night. Dealing with ghouls, boggarts, and all manner of wicked beasties would be all in a day's work. That's what the Spook did, and I was going to be his apprentice."How old is he?" asked the Spook.
"He'll be thirteen come August."
"Bit small for his age. Can he read and write?"
"Aye," Dad answered. "He can do both, and he also knows Greek. His mam taught him, and he could speak it almost before he could walk."
The Spook nodded and looked back across the muddy path beyond the gate toward the farmhouse, as if he were listening for something. Then he shrugged. "It's a hard enough life for a man, never mind a boy," he said. "Think he's up to it?"
"He's strong and he'll be as big as me when he's full grown," my dad said, straightening his back and drawing himself up to his full height. That done, the top of his head was just about level with the Spook's chin.
Suddenly the Spook smiled. It was the very last thing I'd expected. His face was big and looked as if it had been chiseled from stone. Until then I'd thought him a bit fierce. His long black cloak and hood made him look like a priest, but when he looked at you directly, his grim expression made him appear more like a hangman weighing you up for the rope.
The hair sticking out from under the front of his hood matched his beard, which was gray, but his eyebrows were black and very bushy. There was quite a bit of black hair sprouting out of his nostrils, too, and his eyes were green, the same color as my own.
Then I noticed something else about him. He was carrying a long staff. Of course, I'd seen that as soon as he came within sight, but what I hadn't realized until that moment was that he was carrying it in his left hand.
Did that mean that he was left-handed like me?
It was something that had caused me no end of trouble at the village school. They'd even called in the local priest to look at me, and he'd kept shaking his head and telling me I'd have to fight it before it was too late. I didn't know what he meant. None of my brothers were left-handed and neither was my dad. My mam was cack-handed, though, and it never seemed to bother her much, so when the teacher threatened to beat it out of me and tied the pen to my right hand, she took me away from the school and from that day on taught me at home.
"How much to take him on?" my dad asked, interrupting my thoughts. Now we were getting down to the real business.

Will there be a Season 2 of Frankelda’s Book of Spooks?
The Max series Frankelda’s Book of Spooks is a Mexican stop-motion animated television series created by brothers Arturo and Roy Ambriz Rendón and produced by the animation studio Cinema Fantasma for Cartoon Network Latin America and Max. This Burtonesque show was a hit amongst viewers and critics, so everyone’s asking, will we get a Season 2?
This anthology series follows the story of Frankelda, a mysterious ghostwriter, who tells tales of terror with the assistance of her grumpy enchanted book Herneval. The first season’s length is 70 minutes divided into 5 spooky episodes — in each one audiences watch kids encounter monsters that embody their deepest and most corrosive fears. These monsters are known as “Spooks” and often pay heavy consequences for their decisions.
Aimed more toward younger audiences, Frankelda’s Books of Spooks boasts detailed puppetry, a stop-motion filming style, and of course, spooky, sometimes funny, stories. Fun fact: 122 puppets and 42 sets were created for the series.
Will there be a Frankelda’s Book of Spooks Season 2?
Official Renewal Status: TBC
Whilst a second season of Frankelda’s Book of Spooks has not been confirmed, fans can delight that there will be a movie coming. Hopefully, this will also be a success and their stories can continue.
Since Frankelda’s Book of Spells only debuted outside of Latin America on October 12, 2023, there is little information currently available on how well the series performed for the platform. It has been well-received in general, though, with an impressive 8.8 rating on IMDb .
Viewership metrics aside, it seems a major part of Frankelda’s ongoing success is Guillermo del Toro. In an interview with Screen Daily , the Ambriz brothers revealed:
Guillermo del Toro, in fact, wrote a letter to Warner Bros Discovery executives congratulating them and telling them to continue supporting Frankelda , because it was a milestone in the history of animation in Mexico.
When will Frankelda and the Prince of Spooks be released?
At the Pixelatl Festival in 2022 a spin-off series exploring the backstory of Frankelda and Herneval further was announced, titled Frankelda and the Prince of Spooks . Then in early 2023 at the Annecy International Animation Festival it was confirmed this will in fact be a movie and is a work in progress.
Frankelda and the Prince of Spooks will expand on Frankelda and her companion, as we follow Frankelda as she travels in the form of a ghost to a kingdom of her own invention inhabited by Spooks, which are all the monstrous characters she created in her horror tales. Her guide Herneval, the Prince of Spooks, takes her to help him save the balance between the Realm of Fiction and the Realm of Existence by using her talent as a writer.
The film is currently in post-production and we’re expecting a release date towards the end of the year . The film is going to be created, written, and directed by the Ambriz Brothers again, keeping its originality and authenticity.
Frankelda and the Prince of Spooks will be coming to Max Latin America.
Where to watch Frankelda’s Book of Spooks?
The English dub of Frankelda’s Book of Spooks is available to stream on Max. Unfortunately, due to Max’s geo-restrictions, non-US viewers will have to wait until a streaming service in their area has the content to watch it. Max does not offer a free trial, so you will have to get a paid subscription to the streaming platform to enjoy the show.
However, you can play the original soundtrack on Amazon, Spotify, and YouTube.

When young novice monk Brother Beowulf is sent to spy on Spook Johnson, he has no idea of the trouble he's about to find himself in. Johnson boasts to Wulf of his battles against demonic creatures and even seems to imprison local witches, though Wulf is sceptical. But the monsters Johnson claims to fight turn out to be very real indeed, and soon Wulf is forced to seek help from another young Spook, Tom Ward, who terrifies and charms him in equal measure. But the forces of the dark are many and it's not long until Wulf and Tom realise they've bitten off far more than they can chew.

First off, I highly recommend you get the Unabridged version rather than the Abridged version. It's a fantastic story and for some of it to be edited out is a horrible thought. With a great reader and storyline this book take you into a world of Boggarts, Witches and Ghasts. If you want something to pass the time, something as good as Twilight or Harry Potter or just a great listen then this is the thing for you. I didn't find it that scary, but some parts are a bit gory. I would recommend this to someone over the age of eight.

Is This Book Worth It??
Yes I absolutely love this reading of the Spooks apprentice if you liked Percy Jackson, Aberrations, or Alex Rider, this is a great book for you! My age rating is 11+ for blood and gore descriptions and scary moments not to be read by anyone under the age of 11 Because it may cause nightmares I hope this was useful❤️

Suited to a younger audience, I first read this at 14 or 15 and was absolutely in love with it back then. I am 25 now and can still enjoy the book though I can see areas where it is obviously aimed at a younger demographic. Jamie Glover does a very good job of bringing the characters to life - some audiobooks feel impossible to listen to because of a bad reader, other readers are passable, Jamie adds to the story which I find rare.
Really good book for all ages
Is the really good book for kids and anyone who is just interested in the supernatural things that go bump in the night
A very clever and exciting book for all ages
What made the experience of listening to The Spook's Apprentice the most enjoyable?
The tension and the history of the Pendle hill witches.
What other book might you compare The Spook's Apprentice to, and why?
The Harry potter books as the adventures are just as gripping and exciting.
What does Jamie Glover bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The theatre in his voice adds to the tension and allows a the imagin to takeover more,
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The moment the boy moves out of home and leaves his famil behind
Any additional comments?
An amazing book for mixed ages groups. I have continued to down load all the books in this series and so far have enjoyed every book.
- Overall 4 out of 5 stars
the story was quite good but could have a bit more suspense in it the reader could have been a bit slower in reading it as I found it too fast overall good reading material the story was easy to follow but it was too short would have liked to hear more looking forward to book 2.
Scary and Thrilling Childrens Story
I brought this story tape to listen to with my two teenage sons for long car journey. My two children were hooked from the first and I must admit I was too. This is a brilliant exhilarating tale of magic and coming of age is fun for all ages. Through I probably wouldn't let a very young child listen to it as it is in places quite terrifying.
love this series and the narrator grew on me
fantastic. the narrator grew on me so much. for some reason didn't click with him right away, but by a few chapters in his voice seemed perfect. really glad the whole series is on audible, so many great series are unfinished. listen to this if you get a chance.
A little rushed but great story
love this series but felt like the narrator was rushing to get to the end of the book.
great nostalgic read
great book that I read in my childhood and even better than I remember
the best audio book I have listened to
amazing narration, thrilling story and can't wait for what's next. a must for supernatural fans

Easy on the ears
I enjoyed this book. Light and easy to listen to. The narrator did just enough without overdoing things.
The narrator for this story was perfectly fit. The character voices brought the feeling of dread, fear, trust and disharmony to life. The novel itself is beautifully written and when you close your eyes, you can see the Spook's world as told by the author. This is a series I read when I was a teen and now listening to it as an adult is fantastic. An absolute recommended novel and series.
Spooky and amazing
I love this book so much, narrated well and a fantastic story. Recommended to all.
Just a really good story. I listened to it all in one session. I couldn't 'put it down'.
The beginning of great Spooky story...
Great story and well narrated, but very different from the film Seventh Son. Looking forward to listening to the next book.

Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!
