Trouble there is aplenty. When a terrible blizzard keeps his mother from returning home, Aaron sets out to search for her—but he stumbles upon the mysterious Half-a-Moon Inn, where the crafty Miss Grackle forces him to work for her.

From Our Editors

Lost on wintry roads, mute-born Aaron searches for his mother, who has failed to return from the town market. Nearly half-frozen, he stumbles into the Half-a-Moon Inn, where the wicked proprietor forces him to assist her with picking pockets and prying into people's dreams. Readers have been captivated by Aaron's escape from evil since 1980, when this charming and suspenseful book was first published. Illustrated.
