A wonderfully spooky title for younger readers from the award-winning author of Journey to the River Sea, Eva Ibbotson, with beautiful cover illustration by Alex T. Smith, creator of the Claude series.
Eva Ibbotson was born in Vienna, but when the Nazis came to power her family fled to England and she was sent to boarding school. She became a writer while bringing up her four children, and her bestselling novels have been published around the world. Journey to the River Sea won the Nestle Gold Award and was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. Some of her other young fiction titles include The Secret of Platform 13, Which Witch? and The Great Ghost Rescue. Eva died peacefully in October 2010 at the age of eighty-five.
You'll love this chain-rattling, blood-oozingly hilarious story. -- Daily Telegraph
