Publisher's Summary

When Madlyn and Rollo are sent to stay at ancient Clawstone Castle, they soon fall in love with the house and its eccentric, penniless inhabitants.

There's grumpy, limping Uncle George, mousey Miss Emily, and reclusive Cousin Howard, who hardly ever leaves his library.

But the children are especially enchanted by the cattle of Clawstone Park - rare and beautiful beasts, as white as snow and as wild as wolves. No one knows where they came from, but the owners of Clawstone have always protected them. So, as the castle crumbles away, Madlyn and Rollo devise a money-raising scheme.

    "Disappointing"

    Definitely meant for younger children, and even so I wouldn't call this one of the author's best. I missed the engaging, eccentric characters she created in Secret Countess, Company of Swans, and Magic Flutes. The detailed descriptions of gross hauntings didn't seem like a satisfying substitute.

    "nah..."

    I thought this would be narrated by David Tennant who I heard was brilliant reading this book. Not an interesting read this narrator. It was an error in purchase--wish I could return it. I'll be looking for his version. *sigh*
