Listing Detail Tabs

Margaret Mahy's Dangerous Spaces is a powerful and chilling story. Eleven-year-old Anthea, grief-stricken since the unexplained disappearance of her parents on a sailing trip, comes to live with her aunt and uncle and cousin Flora, only to discover she cannot relate to the warm-hearted Wakefields or to the cheerful chaos of their large, run-down house. Welcome and wanted though they try to make her feel, she longs to escape to a space of her own.

One day, rummaging in the spare room, Anthea finds an old-fashioned photographic viewer - a stereoscope - and a notebook belonging to her great uncle Henry, who died as a boy. At first she is fascinated by them; only later is she alarmed, and then terrified, by the ghostly nightmare into which they draw her, where the lines between waking and sleeping become increasingly blurred.

Lured on by dead Henry, Anthea is soon in tremendous danger. But it is Flora, sensible practical Flora, a little jealous of her beautiful cousin, who, by becoming involved herself in the phantom world of Viridian, is able to drag Anthea back to the safety of reality.
