Long Lankin

author: Lindsey Barraclough

In an exquisitely chilling novel, four children unravel the mystery of a family curse — and a ghostly creature known in folklore as Long Lankin. Sisters Cora and Mimi, along with village boys Roger and Peter, must uncover the horrifying truth that has held the isolated village of Bryers Guerdon in its dark grip for centuries — before it’s too late. Riveting and intensely atmospheric, this stunning debut will hold readers in its spell long after the last page is turned.

"A stunningly atmospheric and genuinely horrifying story." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
