Summary

‘I could get in,’ Marianne thought, ‘if there was a person inside the house. There has got to be a person. I can’t get in unless there is somebody there.’

A powerful and haunting classic about a girl haunted by her own dreams.

Ill and bored with having to stay in bed, Marianne picks up a pencil and starts doodling – a house, a garden, a boy at the window. That night she has an extraordinary dream. She is transported into her own picture, and as she explores further she soon realises she is not alone. The boy at the window is called Mark, and his every movement is guarded by the menacing stone watchers that surround the solitary house. Together, in their dreams, Marianne and Mark must save themselves . . .

The perfect gift for children aged 8+, this well-loved classic will delight a new generation of readers of the Faber Children’s Classics list.
