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.

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.
