The cover of 'The Haunting of Pip Parker'

Lots of children find it hard to sleep on Christmas Eve, thinking about the presents Santa will bring.

But Pip Parker is not excited, she's scared.

For on her bedroom wall, a horrible skull shape is gleaming.

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?

"Ideal for six- to eight-year-olds keen to read on their own."

The Sunday Telegraph
