Prize-winning Marcus Sedgwick returns his readers to Castle Otherhand and the hilarious and unlikely topsy turvy goings on there. Things have gone from bad to worse at the Castle and now it is up for sale. As Solstice records in her completely secret and totally private diary, she is at her wits end – as is everyone else – as to how all the difficulties within, including finding an eye-wateringly large sum of cash, can be resolved and how it can be saved. Luckily, Edgar the Raven, returns in time to put his mind to the problems and sort things out – in his own unusual way.
Join the wonderfully weird Otherhand family and their faithful guardian, Edgar the raven, and discover the dark secrets of Castle Otherhand. In the sixth of the Raven Mysteries, all manner of disaster descends on Castle Otherhand; weirdness abounds, the family are on the verge of being thrown out of their own home, and there's still no sign of the fabled treasure of the Otherhand. Worse still, there's no sign of Edgar, either. So will it be diamonds or doom for the Otherhands? Dedicated website on Raven Mysteries: www.ravenmysteries.co.uk
