The Haunted Painting on the Wall
by Devika A. Rosamund

‘The invitation to stay at the haunted castle came on the second morning of the school summer holidays...
“It’s from your father’s great aunt Alice in the Highlands of Scotland. We haven’t heard from her for years. She lives in an old remote castle in a forest in the middle of nowhere...”’

When Tracy and Sebastian go to stay with their great aunt in her old castle in the Highlands of Scotland, they are intent on searching for a secret, long-lost hidden chamber which legend says hides priceless treasure that has never been found.

Unfortunately for the children, a malevolent ghost has been haunting the castle for four centuries, waiting to wreak revenge. In searching for the hidden chamber, the children are unwittingly putting themselves in great danger.

Unbeknownst to them, witchcraft was once practised in the castle, and sinister dark magic is still lurking within the castle walls waiting to be unleashed again. On Tracy’s bedroom wall in the castle, there is a mysterious painting which holds a very dark and terrifying secret...

It was night. Suddenly Tracy awoke with a jolt. Something had disturbed her in her sleep. There seemed to be the sound of someone crying in the distance. A feeling of panic came over Tracy as for a moment she didn’t know where she was. Everything around her was pitch black...

The Haunted Painting on the Wall is a chilling tale that will appeal to children aged 9-12.

That's Christmas

Just the thing to get a pre-teen or early teen away from the TV, video games or other electronic devices into a world of magic, mystery and the supernatural that only a good book can create.

Hard to put it down, all the way through to its wonderful uplifting ending. Strongly recommend it.

by Tony Wellman

This is an exciting adventure story as well as a ghost story, easy to read, for children aged 8 to 12. The secret of the haunted painting is that it was used in a magic spell long ago, and has the terrible magical power to draw people into itself, so that they can be observed in the picture! When the children get trapped in the picture, one by one, they need to be rescued.The ghost of the castle wants to keep them there forever and would like to prevent them from finding the long, lost hidden chamber in the castle, containing priceless treasure.
Children who like ghost stories will love this book. Devika Rosamund was a primary school teacher for more than 25 years and knows how to write for children.
