Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 8 October 2009
I first read this when I was about 6 and have loved it ever since. The story is about a little boy called Kay Harker who lives at Seekings, a rambling old house somewhere in the country. As he has no parents he has a guardian and also a governess Miss Sylvia Daisy who is a tartar. However, things are not what they seem in Seekings particularly when cats speak, little doors open in the wainscotting, characters from old pictures come to life and take you into them and maybe worst of all, you find out that there is Witchcraft going on under your nose in your own house!

The Pouncer Seven are after treasure lost many, many years ago and will stop at nothing to recover it including using dark magic. Kay and his friends have to stop The Pouncer Seven from finding the treasure and then return it to its rightful owner.

This is a truly delightful book written by the then Poet Laureate of the time, John Masefield. It is not scary in the actual sense of the word more of an adventure that many a little boy or girl would love to have been involved in,
