Product description

Lots of children find it difficult to sleep on Christmas Eve, because they’re so excited about the presents that Father Christmas is going to bring. But Pip Parker isn’t excited – she’s scared. Every night for a week, she’s been lying awake watching the horrible skull shape gleaming from her bedroom wall. What is it? Why is it haunting her? When will it go away? Written by a former Children’s Laureate, this deliciously spooky but ultimately reassuring Christmas story combines Anne Fine’s wonderful words with Emma Chichester Clark’s evocative illustrations.
