From the Publisher
Mr. Hood''s Holiday House has stood for a thousand years,
welcoming countless children into its embrace. It is a place of
miracles where every childhood whim may be satisfied. There is a
price to be paid, of course, but young Harvey Swick, bored with his
life and beguiled by Mr. Hood''s wonders, does not stop to consider
the consequences. It is only when the house shows its darker
face-when Harvey discovers the pitiful creatures that dwell in its
shadows-that he comes to doubt Mr. Hood''s philanthropy.
But the house and its mysterious architect are not about to
release their captive without a battle. Mr. Hood has ambitions for
his new guest, for Harvey''s soul burns brighter than any he has
encountered in ten centuries . . .
