About this product
- Description'They want me to join them. All I have to do is to reach out to them ...' Solomon struggles in school. He is bullied by his teachers and let down by his parents. His only refuge is in the local kirkyard, among ancient graves that lie in the shadow of the rowan tree. But when workmen uproot the tree and a dark and terrifying power is unleashed. Will Solomon be able to save himself and the people he cares about from the terrible curse within? Whispers in the Graveyard won the Carnegie Medal and has been adapted as a play. This edition features a new cover by illustrator Thomas Flintham. One of those rare books that makes you want to put your life on hold for as long as it takes to finish it. (Independent).
