Are you in need of a relaxing getaway? Looking for somewhere to escape the daily grind of lair lurking, bridge bothering or humdrum haunts? Then The Nothing to See Here Hotel is the place for you!

Meet Frankie Banister who, along with his human mum, Rani, and his half-troll dad, Bargeous, runs the hotel and tries to keep the magical creatures who stay from wrecking the place on a daily basis. Weird is normal for the Banister family!

In the rip-roaring book You Ain’t Seen Nothing YetiFrankie and the guests of The Nothing To See Here Hotel are looking forward to enjoying the summer holiday of TROGMANAY!

A nice relaxing break is exactly what they need, having just saved the hotel from a rude goblin prince.

But when a snowstorm blows in (bringing a yeti family with it), a number of mysterious guests arrive, and something sinister seems to be taking over the hotel. Suddenly celebrating is the last thing on anyone’s mind. Eeeek
