I am three quarters of the way through this book at the moment. It’s a mystery, and quite spooky really. Something is scratching around in the attic above Alison’s room. Yet the only thing up there is a stack of grimy old plates. Alison and her stepbrother, Roger, discover that the flowery patterns on the plates, when traced onto paper, can be fitted together to create owls-owls that disappear when no one is watching. With each vanished owl, strange events begin to happen.

It’s a gripping and creepy plot and I’m really enjoying it.
