Nick was frightened of ogres and spiders and crabs and cold water and the dentist and dark nights, but he wasn’t afraid of Mr Evans, even after that first dreadful night, because Mr Evans had false teeth that clicked when he talked.
Bombs are falling on London when Carrie and Nick are sent away. Wartime evacuees billeted in Wales, they stay with bullying old Mr Evans and his timid mouse of a sister. Their friend Albert is luckier, living in Druid’s Bottom with Hepzibah Green and the strange Mr Johnny. But the old house is tainted by the Screaming Skull’s ancient curse. When Carrie does a terrible thing, will it haunt them all forever? This timeless story of two evacuees transported to rural Wales brilliantly evokes the Second World War era.
