The Haunting of Pip Parker

Written by Anne Fine

Illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark

The Haunting of Pip Parker Synopsis

A deliciously spooky Christmas tale by the 2001-2003 Children's Laureate. Lots of children find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve, usually because they are excited about the presents that Father Christmas is going to bring. But Pip Parker is not excited; she's scared. Every night for a week she's been lying awake watching the horrible skull shape gleaming from her bedroom wall. What is it? Why is it haunting her? When will it go away?

The Haunting of Pip Parker Press Reviews

Anne Fine must now be considered in the same ranks as her more venerable rivals from the last two decades of the best writing for children. Everything she does is good and true. (The Independent) Low on long words and high on high jinks... Each book contains a rip-roaring story by a top author. (The Young Telegraph on the Sprinters series)
