Synopsis

Crampton Rock is a peaceful fishing village on a remote island, accessible only at low tide. When Stanley Buggles inherits his great-uncle's house on Crampton Rock, it seems like a perfect place for a long summer holiday. But there's always something to go and spoil it all, isn't there? What is the dark secret of the mysterious sweet shop owner? Why are all the dogs three-legged? Is there really a werewolf on the loose? And what do the old buccaneers want with Stanley?

Originally published under the title 'The Wooden Mile'.
