" Cliff McNish's first trilogy, which includes The Doomspell, The Scent of Magic, and The Wizard's Promise, won him an instant and avid readership and was published in 19 languages around the world. He was hailed as a "great new voice in writing for children" (The Bookseller). For Carolrhoda Books he has written The Silver Child, Silver City, Silver World, and Breathe. Mr. McNish was born in northeastern England. He enjoys playing golf, walking up mountains, and eating as much hot and spicy food as possible. He is married and has a teenage daughter, for whose entertainment he made up his first stories. "From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8–Asthmatic Jack and his recently widowed mother move into an old farmhouse–but they aren't alone. The spirits of four children also inhabit it, but only Jack can see and hear them. Those spirits aren't alone, either. A Ghost Mother rules the roost and has enslaved the ghost children. And now she is after Jack. However, he has a second sight that might help him save the souls of those dead, abused children. Can he act fast enough to save himself and his mother? McNish keeps the pacing and action moving right along. While the story is plot driven, the author gives his characters substance, and his language usage and style are fairly sophisticated. This is a well-crafted story that is weightier than the standard chiller. Filled with suspense, it will keep readers riveted to the pages.–Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
