Alert: La casa nella bruma

We don’t know much more at this point other than it seems artist Alexander Daniloff is at it again for Happy Planet Books. The Italian publishers released the original Lewis Barnavelt trilogy not too long ago with Daniloff providing artwork for La figura nell'ombra (The Figure in the Shadows).  A number of Bellairs titles have been mentioned on their website since then but it is only now they appear to be considered for released.

La casa nella nebbia (The Mansion in the Mist, 1992) is the fourth title in the four-book Anthony Monday series and this piece of artwork shows a young Anthony Monday – boasting a Hoosac-themed cap – in front of “Auro est locus…”. Other artwork is available for viewing at Daniloff’s website.

The Anthony Monday series has not received much attention overseas and this looks like a welcome way to introduce three more of Bellairs’ clever creations to a new audience.  From their website HPN notes the next titles should be La lampada dello stregone and La maledizione della statuina blu.

More to follow.  Stay tuned.
