The Talmans are leaving the dirt and danger of New Yok behind. Wise, gentle Rufus, beautiful Mickie, eleven-year-old Todd, and little Jenny will bring new life to the old house in Glendon, Vermont - their dream come true.
They will change everything-except the playroom. It is filled ith treasures. And terrors that will reach out to posess them ...move them to reenact a drama of ancient wrath --doom them to live--and die---helpless playthings, caught in a nightmare they can neither stop nor understand.
