I suppose if there was anyone in Dove's Cove who Cara was going to single out as a witch, it had to be old Mrs. Blackert. Laura would never have believed that she and her best friend, Cara, would be standing on a garbage can peering into the window of her rarely seen neighbor's candlelit dining room. But if Laura hadn't been at least a little convinced that Cara might be right about Mrs. Blackert, they never would have discovered the portraits. And so here they were, watching spellbound as Mrs. Blackert had a conversation with one particular likeness whose evil eyes seemed to slide and shift--a conversation that was not one-sided. Chockful of scenes that fire the imagination and crawl up the spine, Lisa Mullarkey's first book for young readers offers a wonderfully suspenseful story of friendship, witchery, and impossible things--that just might be true! Lisa Geurdes Mullarkey lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Laura would rather leave well enough alone, but Cara, who is brilliant and curious—as well as a bit of a bully—badgers Laura into helping her spy on Mrs. Blackert.
