The Wakening



Sam's dreams are haunted by the terrifying figure of Tom Tiddler - but the danger only really begins when his dream-life merges with his reality...

'All at once the hill erupted and out came - not a cute, velvety mole - but a hand! Bony and hairy, the hand grasped at the air like some hideous mutant meat-eating plant. Once. Twice. The third time it struck lucky and, with the boy's wrist in its grasp, it squeezed viciously. Sam screamed...'

The terrifying figure of Tom Tiddler haunts Sam's dreams. With the help of his new friend, Jordy, he identifies Tom to be the spirit of a young pickpocket who, many years ago, was unfairly accused of terrible crimes against children and murdered by a lynch mob... Now Sam and Jordy must clear Tom's name - or be haunted by his spirit forever...
