When we think of a haunted castle, we immediately go to visions of a castle somewhere in Eastern Europe. But North America has its share of castles, and consequently, it shares spooky, unexplainable stories. These stories, good or bad, make these castles precious and dreamy to the kids you tell stories with.
Sometimes the mysterious stories start long before the castle was even built, and these stories are probably a hint that nothing should be built in a particular location. A similar scenario appears in the Book 4 of the series called “Mikkee The Martian,” written by Peter Locke. The series is about Mikkee the Martian, who comes to Earth for research and relaxation. Shortly after he arrives, he meets twins, Billy and Jilly Watson, whom he befriends and then embarks upon several exciting adventures.
Book 4: The King and the Castle discuss Mr. Watson’s arrangement for Mikkee, the Martian, and the twins to visit an ancient castle. As the story goes, they are escorted by a pompous guide through a tour of the castle. Mikkee, the series’ protagonist sees the ghost of the king leaning against the entrance. He gives the twins the power to see him too. The king acts like the clown and makes fun of the guide. The twins find this all very funny and are told off by their father, who, of course, cannot see the ghost. The king shows Mikkee a secret room upstairs and a secret passage in the kitchen. The three follow this to a smugglers’ cave, and Jilly finds some treasure.
