Book description
When Jan Pienkowski began a haunting series of paintings and asked Joan Aiken to compose accompanying ghostly stories, the result was bound to be an exceptional book.

Here are tales of ghostly revenge, tales to scare and amuse, peopled with malevolent spirits and mysterious heroes. Haunting happenings and peculiar twists shape these stories; the unexplained and unearthly goings-on add up to an extraordinary and eerie experience.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In a collection of supernatural tales, a ghost baby that was abandoned two hundred years ago is adopted, mannequins watch a young girl and her boyfriend, and a brother and sister both dream of a land that may, or may not be, imaginary.
