From the Inside Flap

‘PENDLE IS RIDDLED WITH WITCHES,’ THE SPOOK SAID. ‘SO THERE MIGHT WELL BE THINGS I’VE NEVER COME UP AGAINST MYSELF.WE’LL HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE AND READY TO LEARN.BUT I THINK THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WE FACE IS THEIR SHEER NUMBERS.OFTEN WITCHES BICKER AND ARGUE BUT WHEN THEY DO AGREE AND MEET TOGETHER WITH A COMMON PURPOSE, THEIR STRENGTH IS GREATLY INCREASED.AYE, WE MUST BEWARE THAT.YOU SEE THAT’S RIGHT AT THE HEART OF THE THREAT WE FACE – THAT THE WITCH CLANS MIGHT UNITE.’ In Pendle the witches are rising and the three most powerful witch clans are rumoured to be uniting in order to conjure an unimaginable evil. Together they will be capable of raising the dark made flesh – the Devil himself. Tom and the Spook need to set off for Pendle to avert the unthinkable. But before they go, the Spook tells Tom to journey home and collect the trunks Mam left behind for him. But what dark family secrets are contained in the trunks? And will they place Tom’s family in even greater danger or provide the help Tom and his master will need in Pendle?

His home is in the middle of Boggart territory and his village has a boggart called the Hall Knocker, which was laid to rest under the step of a house near the church. Most of the places in the Spook's books are based on real places in Lancashire. And the inspiration behind the stories often comes from local ghost stories and legends.

The Spook's Apprentice is the winner of both the Sefton Book Award and the Hampshire Book Award.
