Isabel Abedi: Beneath the Ghost Train
Lorenzo and Dina hold their breath as the ghost train sets off. Slowly it climbs towards the open mouth of a dragon, and then the darkness swallows them up. Creepy skeletons and pale vampires with blood-red lips emerge and long, hairy spiders' legs brush their faces. But the terrors of the ghost train pale when a real ghost suddenly appears - and with it a sinister devil with a brush and sponge that wipes out everything it touches. At the last minute the ghost saves the children and takes them to a trap door through which a silvery light is shining. It is the entrance to Gravalon, the secret land beneath the ghost train. Lorenzo and Dina are about to embark on the most adventurous journey of their lives.
