Hey, Cupcakes! The very awesome people at Disney-Hyperion have created a wicked cool interactive trailer/game for bestselling author Jonathan Stroud's new novel Lockwood & Co: The Screaming Staircase. This trailer is interactive, in that it is like one of those choose your own adventure stories, where you control where the trailer goes. I had a lot of fun playing with this trailer and I think you will too. 


You can learn more about the book below....

Lockwood & Co.: The Screaming Staircase

By Jonathan Stroud

Bestselling author of the Bartimaeus trilogy

"This story will keep you reading late into the night, but you'll want to leave the lights on. Stroud is a genius at inventing an utterly believable world that is very much like ours, but so creepily different."—Rick Riordan

“[T]his highly entertaining first book in Stroud’s Lockwood & Co. series…shows his customary flair for blending deadpan humor with thrilling action.”—Publishers Weekly

“A heartily satisfying string of entertaining near-catastrophes, replete with narrow squeaks and spectral howls.”
Kirkus Reviews

A sinister Problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts, spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren't exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see—and eradicate—these supernatural foes. Many different Psychic Detection Agencies have cropped up to handle the dangerous work, and they are in fierce competition for business.

In The Screaming Staircase, the plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood & Co, a small agency that runs independent of any adult supervision. After an assignment leads to both a grisly discovery and a disastrous end, Lucy, Anthony, and their sarcastic colleague, George, are forced to take part in the perilous investigation of Combe Carey Hall, one of the most haunted houses in England. Will Lockwood & Co. survive the Hall's legendary Screaming Staircase and Red Room to see another day?

Readers who enjoyed the action, suspense, and humor in Jonathan Stroud's internationally best-selling Bartimaeus books will be delighted to find the same ingredients, combined with deliciously creepy scares, in his thrilling and chilling Lockwood & Co. series.

Jonathan Stroud ( is the author of the New York Times best-selling Bartimaeus Trilogy, as well as Heroes of the ValleyThe LeapThe Last Siege, and Buried Fire.  He lives in England with his family.
