The Devil Walks

Level 1

FINE, Ann
Visit the author's website

Anne Fine has written this novel as an introduction to ‘gothic’ stories in the narrative tradition of Dickens and Conan Doyle or Saki. And it works well; it’s not only a chilling page-turner, but it also introduces young readers to a more slow paced approach to the uncanny.
