The other stories are: "Saint Nicolas' Eve," "Heatherwold Hall," "Trevarthen's Doom," "The Mystery of the North Wing," and "Two Sides of a Story." Dark, romantic tales, for the most part, some set in France in the days of the kings. "The Mystery of the North Wing" is a rationalized ghost story. "Trevarthen's Doom" is a weird tale with a seaside setting. Rowsell's best known children's book is probably her fantasy NUMBER NIP; OR, THE SPIRIT OF THE GIANT MOUNTAINS (London: W.
