Summary :

Harvey's stuck at home bored on a gloomy February day. Then Rictus arrived, to take him to somewhere special.
Mr. Hood's house stood for a thousand years, welcoming children, giving them something special, giving them whatever they wanted. When Harvey arrives, he is too caught up in the wonders to give a second thought to the consequences. It is only when he sees the darker sides of the house, that he begins to question Hood's philanthropy. But Mr Hood isn't about to let his new guest leave so easily.
Dark enough and beguiling enough to interest any adult, while also unique and interesting in all the ways a child could love. All interspersed with Barker's superb artwork.
