About the Author:

Margaret Mahy until her death a few months ago, was one of the most beloved and internationally renowned children's authors, holding readers spellbound with her richly imagined books, among them The Magician of Hoad, The Chewing Gum Rescue, The Haunting, The Changeover, The Man Whose Mother Was a Pirate, and The Boy Who Was Followed Home. Mahy won the Carnegie medal twice, and in 2006 she received the Hans Christian Andersen award – international recognition for her overall contribution to international children's literature.

Review:

"One of those rare children's authors whose books can also be read with pleasure by grown-ups..."--"The Telegraph"

"An award-winning children's author who tested the limits of her readers' whimsy and courage with fantastical tales of witches, hauntings, infinite fog, and robbers...Reviewers have raved about her whimsical yet hard-edged sensibility, her grasp of childhood's astonishments, her ability to leaven unbelievable situations with believable characters."--"The New York Times "
