Anna and her mum Kate have moved into Dragon House - a large, decrepit old ruin. Kate is planning some major renovations to the house - then she'll sell it on. But some locals seem to have other ideas. Can the house be calling them back? Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this is a shorter version of the original book. The Sharp Shades stories are illustrated and have simpler language and a larger font than the original book. They are perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style.
