Author(s): Enid Blyton
Why is everyone so afraid of the castle on the hill, and what dark secrets lurk inside its walls? Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, Jack and Kiki the parrot are on holiday in the countryside, staying on the side of Castle Hill. When flashing lights are seen in a distant tower, they decide to investigate - and discover a very sinister plot concealed within its hidden rooms and gloomy underground passages.
The second exciting instalment in Enid Blyton's Adventure series, now with a new cover look from rising picture-book star Rebecca Cobb.
Enid Blyton, who died in 1968, is one of the most successful children's authors of all time. She wrote over 700 books, which have been translated into more than forty languages and have sold more than 400 million copies around the world. Her stories of magic, adventure and friendship continue to enchant children the world over. Enid Blyton's beloved works include The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Malory Towers, The Magic Faraway Tree and the Adventure series. Rebecca Cobb is a rising star in children's picture books. Having collaborated on two picture storybooks with the Orange Prize winner Helen Dunmore, Rebecca's debut solo project, the hugely accomplished and heart-breakingly beautiful MISSING MUMMY, was published by Macmillan in 2011. The gorgeously funny and well-received LUNCHTIME followed and, in addition, Rebecca's stunning illustrations accompanied Julia's Donaldson's wonderfully lyrical story in THE PAPER DOLLS. AUNT AMELIA, Rebecca Cobb's most recent picture book, is every bit as warm, engaging and original as her existing books, and is sure to continue to establish her as a real 'one to watch'. Rebecca lives in Cornwall.
