From a Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent Award winner, a delightfully creepy story imbued with magic and seafaring mythology.

When twelve-year-old Rory applies for a job at a spooky mansion in his gloomy seaside town, he finds the owner, Lord Foxglove, odd and unpleasant. But he and his mom need the money, so he takes the job anyway. Rory soon finds that his new boss is not just strange, he's not even human—and he's trying to steal the townspeople's shadows. Together, Rory and his friend Isabella set out to uncover exactly what Foxglove and his otherworldly accomplices are planning. But can two kids defeat a group of ancient evil beings determined to take over the world?

A delightfully creepy tale from CSK/John Steptoe New Talent Award winning author Ronald L. Smith.
