Set during WWII, The Prince of Mist is a dark and atmospheric ghost story that is bound to enthrall. Young Max Carver is none to pleased when his father announces that the family is moving to the country. Unexpectedly, however, Max soon settles happily into the little coastal town where his family has moved — if only he didn't have to contend with the malevolent cat his younger sister has adopted and the creepy garden next door. Also, he's beginning to fear that his house may be haunted by the ghost of a child that lived there years ago. There's a mystery to be solved and Max is determined to solve it. An award-winning international bestseller, The Prince of Mist is recommended for readers 12 and up.
