Sixty Spooky, Strange and Surprising Stories about Abingdon
By Brother Cedric
by Judy Stubley

One day Judy was working in Abingdon Library, on her novel The Story Traveller, when she was approached by Brother Cedric- a ghost who died in 1327.

At first she thought she was having a weird day dream, however on her next visit to the Library Brother Cedric again made himself known and asked her to ghost write his book for him. But then as Judy says in her foreword: ‘What writer wouldn’t jump at the chance to be a ‘ghost writer’ to a real ghost.’

Brother Cedric, who used to illustrate the manuscripts at the Abbey, has been haunting the town ever since his untimely death. He has witnessed all the major events that have occurred since then and, as he has always taken an enormous interest in the local printers to the point of haunting them, he knows a great deal of other information about the town and its people.

He is well aware that many wonderful history books have been written about Abingdon, but he wanted to write a book more specifically for children, to whet their appetites. That is why he sees this book as a ‘pick and mix’, in the hope that his young readers will want to delve even closer into the rich tapestry that makes up the stories of Abingdon.
