Anne Fine is the highly acclaimed childrens author of many successful novels including the Tulip Touch and Madame Doubtfire. Anne was also Children's Laureate between 2001 and 2003.From AudioFile:
What starts out as a mystery turns into a voyage of discovery for five young pupils on an overnight trip to creepy, old Harwock Hall. The sad, gothic tale of Richard Clayton Harwick becomes the catalyst for a series of tales they themselves tell, each a glimpse at the "wicked" stepparents in their own lives. Richard Mitchley creates each of the children and their tales with an energy, clarity and excitement that will keep young listeners on the edge from the mysterious opening tale to the sometimes painful, sometimes silly tales that follow.
