About Victoria Clayton:
Victoria Clayton is a British author of children's books. She is married and has two chidren.

Its sequel, The House Called Hadlows, was published in 1972. They concern a boy called Sebastian, who enters another world through a magic mirror. He meets a girl called Melissa who has been imprisoned by an evil Enchanter and resolves to rescue her. In the second book Sebastian and Melissa release a house from a curse made by the Evil One.
