Description

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.

Review quote

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 *

About Phil Hickes

Phil Hickes (Author)
Born in the UK, Phil now lives with his wife in Portland, Oregon, where he works as an advertising copywriter. He has a passion for horror, ghosts, and all things that go bump in the night. His short stories have been published in adult horror anthologies, but Phil turned his hand to writing middle grade as he wanted to create the same visceral thrill he remembers from reading Alan Garner, Clive King and Roald Dahl.

Keith Robinson (Illustrator)
Keith Robinson loves illustrating children's fiction. Getting lost in a good story and expressing the characters, setting and atmosphere through drawing is still the best kind of escapism he knows. His work is informed by a love of nature, myth and history. Keith lives with his wife and two children in a woodland cottage near the seaside town of Lyme Regis. He works from his studio in the garden. Everyone else calls it a shed but he insists that it's a 'studio'.
