Thank you for your recommendations and insights.
I really liked the Little Vampire books as a kid, so that's an idea to
keep in mind. Several of Dick King-Smith's books have been translated,
from the descriptions I rather liked The Water Horse.
You know, Helen, I've actually been thinking about whether the girl
might be scared by Witch Week. I have to confess that in my recollection
I mostly thought about Charles putting his finger over the candle as
"critical", becaus I found that scene really intense. However, I don't
have clear recollections of reading Witch Week as a kid, only that I am
quite certain I read it, because I encountered such feelings of Deja Vue
when I read it as an adult. That has been some years ago, so maybe I
should reread. :-)
Speaking of scenes in DWJ books that with scary scenes, I remember a
scene of Magicians of Caprona, where the evil witch "melts". That really
got to me as a child. Also, the scene in Charmed Life, where Gwendolin
calls forth the ghosts, I think that's also quite scary....
