A book to be read after dark if you dare. This is terrific writing coupled with such an exciting and frightening storyline of good versus evil that you really will be hanging onto the bedcovers while reading it. It's the third in the Wardstone Chronicles, but each one is a story in itself so not essential to read the first two before reading this one.

Synopsis

The Spook's Secret (Wardstone Chronicles 3) by Joseph Delaney

The nights are drawing in and it's time for Tom and his master to move to Anglezarke, the Spook's winter house. Tom has heard it will be a sinister and menacing place but nothing could fully prepare him for what he finds there. For this house, and indeed the whole of Anglezarke moor is full of secrets about the Spook's youth.

Beautifully produced and consistently surprising, the weird and wonderful Wardstone Chronicles are an annual treat * The Times * The spine-chilling escapades of the Spook and his apprentice continue apace * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * This is terrific writing coupled with such an exciting and frightening storyline of good versus evil that you really will be hanging on to the bedcovers while reading it * My Child *

About the Author

Joseph Delaney

Joseph Delaney is a retired English teacher living in Lancashire. He has three children and seven grandchildren and is a wonderful public speaker available for conference, library and bookshop events. His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church.

Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.

The Spook's Apprentice, The Spook's Curse and The Spook's Secret have all been shortlisted for the Lancashire children's Book for the Year Award. The Spook's Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award.
