Legion of the Dead (Barnaby Grimes #3)

Author(s): Paul Stewart

9-11yrs

Barnaby Grimes is a tick-tock lad, delivering messages and running errands all over the city, day and night. In each tale, he encounters adventure and mystery. In "Legion of the Dead", Barnaby finds himself embroiled in a plot that includes a legion of zombies raised from the dead. In Dickensian times, people were terrified of being buried alive, and so were left in their coffin with a wire, attached to a bell, running from above the ground, down through the earth and the lid of the coffin, and tied to the little finger of the buried body. Those who found themselves awake in the darkness of their coffin could wiggle their finger and summon help. And so one night, Barnaby makes a shortcut through a graveyard and is horrified to hear the tinkling of dozens of little bells.
