This April we are very proud to be publishing Evie’s Ghost – the new book from Helen Peters, author of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted The Secret Hen House Theatre and the highly acclaimed Jasmine Green series for younger readers.
Proof copies of the book have just arrived in the office – and today we’re incredibly pleased to unveil the new book’s BEAUTIFUL cover, illustrated by the amazing Daniela Tetrazzini.
Evie’s been sent to stay with her ancient grandmother in an old creaky house in the middle of nowhere. Her phone is broken and she can’t believe how hugely unfair everything is.
Then, on the first night, Evie sees a strange, ghostly figure at the window. Spooked, she flees from the room, feeling oddly disembodied as she does so.
Out in the corridor, it’s 1814 and Evie finds herself dressed as a housemaid. Little does she know that she’ll need all her cunning to fix the past and stop everything falling apart in the future…
Part Gosford Park, part Charlotte Sometimes, and part The Go-Between, this is an absolutely brilliant time-slip story – spine-tingling, moving, funny and heartbreaking.
And here’s the beautiful cover for the book:
