A gripping, haunting story of one boy's attempts to overcome difficulties both regular and otherworldly. Bonus materials include a glossary of grave symbols, tree folklore, author Q&A, and facts about dyslexia.

They want me to join them. All I have to do is to reach out to them . . . Solomon struggles in school. He is bullied by his teachers and let down by his parents. His only refuge is in the local cemetery, among ancient graves that lie in the shadow of the rowan tree. But when workmen uproot the tree, a dark and terrifying power is unleashed. Will Solomon be able to save himself and the people he cares about from the terrible curse within? Whispers in the Graveyard won the Carnegie Medal and has been adapted as a play.
