Turn on your torches and join Aveline Jones!

Aveline loves reading ghost stories, so a dreary half-term becomes much more exciting when she discovers a spooky old book. Not only are the stories spine-tingling, but it belonged to a girl called Primrose Penberthy, who vanished mysteriously, never to be seen again. Intrigued, Aveline decides to investigate Primrose's disappearance, with some help from her new friend, Harold.

Now someone...or something, is stirring. And it is looking for Aveline.

The first in a deliciously spine-tingling, spooky new series, where mysteries are always solved, spirits are always laid to rest, and everybody gets to bed on time. Perfect for adventurers aged 9+ and fans of Michelle Harrison, Piers Torday and Jamie Littler.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This spooky story is a Halloween treat - The Times, Children's Book of the Week

I raced through The Haunting of Aveline Jones. The world of Malmouth is perfectly drawn, with lots of lovely atmospheric touches, and the story is genuinely shivers-down-the-spine creepy. - Jennifer Killick, author of Crater Lake

Spooky and thrilling - I'll be sleeping with the lights on tonight! - Helena Duggan, author of A Place Called Perfect

Phil Hickes' story is a thrilling, and eerily disturbing read. - Newbury Weekly News
