Halloween is much more than tricks or treats, it is also All Hallows Eve, where the souls of the dead walk among us. Richard Palmisano, author of Meeting Place of the Dead knows however that it's not just All Hallows Eve when ghosts appear amongst us...

How did you come up with the idea for this work?

Halloween is tomorrow and acclaimed author Philippa Dowding, (The Lost Gargoyle series, and The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden) sits down with us to talk about her new book Jake and the Giant Hand.

Tell us about your book.

Wow, it’s Hallo-week already, and tomorrow the streets will be filled with ghosts and goblins galore. There’s nothing spooky about our media highlights though, so take a break from carving pumpkins and practicing your zombie walk to hear about what our authors have been up to this week!
