A set of twins has come to the Goolz for help in finding their missing mother, whom they believe has been taken by the monster rumored to live in the Mallow Marsh. When the (very real) monster bites Harold, his bizarre symptoms cause him to fear he is transforming into a monster himself. Then Suzie is taken, and it's up to Harold and Ilona to save her, prevent the formation of future marsh monsters, and stop Harold's own frightening transformation.

In this humorous, witty ghost story, Harold, who uses a wheelchair, accepts a mysterious artifact from a horror novelist’s daughter and discovers that while it may help him fight bullies, its power can’t be controlled. When writer Frank Goolz and his daughters move in next door, Harold soon learns that Frank’s books are based on real-life paranormal adventures. At the Goolz home, lights flash inexplicably, objects move on their own, and grotesque specters appear in the attic. Ilona, the beautiful older Goolz daughter, and her mischievous little sister, Suzie, defend Harold from bullies who threaten him daily. Then Ilona gives Harold the Stone of the Dead because she can’t trust her father or Suzie not to use it for a chilling purpose. Now Harold’s bullies are vanishing—is the Stone fulfilling his darkest wishes? This book, the first in a series, is sure to deliver for fans of paranormal stories.
