Summary

A mysterious locket adds some chilling surprises to a family’s cruise in this spooky tale by the author of the Bar Code Trilogy. 
 
Don’t touch anything in The Haunted Museum! 
 
It looks like the high point of Samantha’s spring vacation is going to be a glimpse of a cute boy she sees at The Haunted Museum in England. She and her sister, Jessica, and their parents are taking a cruise on the Titanic 2, a replica of the original Titanic, and there’s not even wifi! At least the Titanic exhibit at the Haunted Museum had wax figures and beautiful jewels to look at. 
 
But from their first day, Samantha and Jessica notice strange things happening. Their cabin number keeps changing. There are creepy scratching sounds coming from between the walls. And a locket that Jess opened at the museum seems to be . . . following them. 
 
Is the locket haunted? Or could it be the ship itself? Are there actors in costume walking about the ship . . . or could they be ghosts? Why is Sam’s sister calling her by another name? Samantha will have to unravel the threads tying her and her sister to the past, or they could go down with the ship!

    Is taking your child to the dentist a nightmare for all concerned?  
     
    This gentle and relaxing self help program has been a godsend for children aged about 8-15 years who were frightened of going to the dentist.  
     
    It helps them relax and feel so much more calm and confident about the visit. Children imagine breathing in a sense of calm and breathing out unwanted scary thoughts and feelings. They go into their inner master control room to adjust the controls that regulate their emotions, setting them at maximum calm and confidence. They receive powerful suggestions for taking control of their feelings and then visualize themselves handling things brilliantly both on the way to and during the appointment, amazing all concerned!  
    This 
    successful approach is based on natural, safe, sound hypnotherapy principles: act out each positive step in the imagination and dramatically increase the chance of success in the real world.  
    Lynda's gentle, English voice calms and re-assures as she gives suggestions for boosting confidence and self esteem. As a former teacher and clinical hypnotherapist of many years standing, she has helped thousands of children world-wide through her audio-books. She has been featured in the press, TV and radio, and is author of two widely acclaimed books on hypnotherapy for children and adults.  
    The recording uses state of the art technology. For maximum benefit, listen - preferably daily - for about three weeks before a dental visit.  
    Regular listening is the key to success!
