A brand-new edition of the Carnegie Medal-winning THE HAUNTING - written by internationally bestselling author, Margaret Mahy.

'Strong and terrifying . . . The novel winds up like a spring. A psychological thriller' - Times Literary Supplement

Eight-year-old Barney has been haunted before. He thought it was something he'd just grow out of, like the imaginary friends his step-mother believes he has. But this time it's different. Footsteps follow him, there's a demanding voice barking orders and Barney begins to feel that sometimes his body is not his own at all . . .

With the help of his sisters, Tabitha and Troy, Barney sets out to uncover the truth about their family secrets and to find out once and for all who it is who's haunting him.

A thrilling ghost story about a 'mostly ordinary' family and a secret legacy.

The book is incredible. This is about a young kid, Barney. He is about 10 years old and he thinks he is being haunted 'again'. He met this young 5 year old ghost from the thin air and say,' Barnaby's dead'.' this book can be readable for about 3 times. this book has the real style of writing a imaginative story like this. i concern that Margaret Mahy will make more books like this and i wish her good luck and congratulatins for her 'Winner of the Carnegie Medal
