Davie and his friend Geordie watch the arrival of a new boy, Stephen Rose, in their town. He seems to have come from nowhere, and when he arrives to live with his distant aunt, the local 'loony', 'Crazy Mary', no one envies his new home. But perhaps, he's the answer to Davie and Geordie's prayers - a secret weapon in their war against the monstrous Mouldy and his gang? Intrigued, Davie and Geordie befriend Stephen. But they are heading innocently down a path that brings with it a monster of an entirely unexpected nature. Their encounter with the mysterious Stephen is as incredible as it is menacing, and as the true story of Stephen's past slowly emerges, Davie's life is changed forever

This is a creepy book. Davie and the new boy strike up a friendship that is very unfriendly. He is stunned when he sees clay made into animate objects responding to commands. Ugly dark arts are at play with sinister motives. I found this book a little hard to take - horror genre not being my favourite - but can see how this would be a hit with those readers who love to be unsettled.
