Description

It began innocently enough with the discovery of an old flyer announcing a long-forgotten magic show held on Saturday, August 8, 1936. But since then, Emily and her teacher, Miss Potts, have been drawn into sinister and frightening shadows from another realm. In a life-and-death struggle, the unlikely pair must overpower the evil that lies waiting at the old railway depot.

But time is running out. Again this year, August 8 falls on a Saturday and Emily's classmate, Craig Chandler, is in grave danger.
He has befriended a mysterious boy and fallen under the spell of a darker magic.

Editorial Review

Bedard is proving to be among Canada's strongest writers of literature for young readers. His deft touch with things mysterious and evil make his books appealing to those readers at the stage where they love to be a little frightened.
- Times Colonist

. . . . pure, scary excitement. . . .
The characters are sharp, the plot is solid, and Bedard has a wonderful way of dropping vivid details, like clues, along the way.
- Publishers Weekly

Bedard's well-paced narrative is rich in language and riveting in tone: it brims with a sense of foreboding that is sustained throughout. . . . A well-crafted eerie novel that demands to be read again.
- School Library Journal
