Publisher Comments:

Reintroducing a magical, bestselling medieval mystery from a Newbery-winning author! The release coincides with Avi's exciting new companion to this book, MURDER AT MIDNIGHT.

Night after night, a ghost appears in the royal castle of Pergamontio, terrifying the princess. Mangus the Magician doesn't believe in ghosts, but that doesn't stop him from being charged with finding this one. The King demands that Mangus free his daughter from the torment of the ghost. . . otherwise, the magician will pay with his life. Mangus's only hope is his faithful, street-smart servant boy, Fabrizio, who must solve the mystery of the ghost using logic and reason — and a bit of magic of his own.

Synopsis:

Under house arrest for confessing to being a magician, Mangus is summoned by the king to free his daughter, Princess Teresina, from the torment of a terrifying ghost. If Mangus cannot free her, it means certain death. But Mangus doesn't believe in ghosts. His servant boy, Fabrizio, is a secret friend of the princess, and is determined to prove that the ghost is real. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

On a stormy night in the Kingdom of Pergamontio, an insistent knocking brings Fabrizio, the servant boy, to the door. Outside stands a solider summoning Fabrizio's master, Mangus the Magician, to the king's castle. Because Mangus has been under house arrest for confessing to be a magician, he cannot imagine why the king is calling for him. But magic is exactly what the king needs. He wants Mangus to free his daughter from the torment of a terrifying ghost. Mangus's life will depend on his success.

Synopsis:

In 1491 Italy, Mangus the Magician must free a princess from a terrifying ghost. But Mangus doesn't believe in ghosts. Actually, he doesn't even believe in magic. But his servant boy, Fabrizio, is a secret friend of the princess and is determined to prove that the ghost is real. Illustrations.
