A gorgeous full-colour chapter book, ideal for young readers (ages 6 and up) with its large font, eye-catching illustrations and easy language Perfect book to read along with and also as a read-it-yourself A beautiful introduction to the works of Ruskin Bond for children The wild wind pushes open windows, chokes chimneys and blows away clothes as it huffs and puffs over the village by Haunted Hill, where Usha, Suresh and Binya live. It's even more mighty the day Usha is on her way back from the bazaar. A deep rumble echoes down the slope and a sudden flash of lightning lights up the valley as fat drops come raining down. In search of shelter, Usha rushes into the ruins on Haunted Hill, grim and creepy against the dark sky. Inside, the tin roof groans, strange shadows are thrown against the walls and little Usha shivers with fear. For she isn't alone. A gritty, hair-raising story about friendship, courage and survival, this stunning edition will introduce another lot of young readers to the magic of Ruskin Bond's craft. Other popular books in the series include The Cherry Tree, Ranji the Music Maker, Earthquake and The Day Grandfather Tickled a Tiger
