A deliciously terrifying and wickedly funny Gothic tale, 'Count Karlstein' is the first-ever children's book by the award-winning Philip Pullman. Originally published in 1982, this new edition of 'Count Karlstein' is a treat no Pullman fan should miss!
No one in the village of Karlstein dares to leave their homes on All Souls' Eve - the night Zamiel the Demon Huntsman comes to claim his prey.
But the evil Count Karlstein has struck a terrible bargain with Zamiel, and so the lives of his two young nieces, Lucy and Charlotte, are in danger. Their only hope lies with Hildi, a castle maidservant, and her fearless brother Peter. Can they save the girls from their dreadful fate? Only one thing is certain - the Demon Huntsman will not return to his dark wood unsatisfied!
