A brief and chilling little chapter book, perhaps most suitable for upper elementary-school students looking for a quick read, The Scream is told from the perspective of David, a young Scots boy confined to a wheelchair after the car accident which killed his parents. Living with his uncanny grandmother, who has the "power," and who was once the "Ridder" on an evacuated northern island, and his tempestuous older sister Lu-Lyn, David is quick to sense the unspoken undercurrents of his life. When Lu-Lyn's conflict with some local boys spirals out of control and leads to tragedy, David and his grandmother must travel back to their ancestral home to lay her spirit to rest...

A prolific and much-beloved children's author, Joan Aiken is perhaps best known for her classic "Gothic" adventures, chief among them The Wolves of Willoughby Chase and Midnight is a Place. The Scream, which features Edvard Munch's famous painting of the same name, was written very late in the author's career, and although it makes for an agreeable "shivery" read, it does not have the power of Aiken's earlier work. It has its own modest charm however, and although David's voice is a little uneven at first, the reader soon settles into the narrative. ( )

This is not one of Aiken's best as she mish-mashes a number of spooky folktales together - not successfully! There is the creepy island that has had all its residents moved after poison, there is the death of parents, a sister, revenge, a boy in a wheelchair, death of a grandmother and miraculous cure for paralysis - all in the one story! David's sister Lu-lyn loves her gran who has been exiled from her scottish island and has come to care for them after their parents were killed in a motor accident. Lu-lyn''s pet dove is killed by some local bullies and she puts the evil eye on them causing the ringleader to go blind. The Lu-lyn slips on oil that the 2 remaining bullies left on the stage during a dance recital and breaks her back and dies. David and his Gran believe the only way they can break the curse of The Scream (Lu-Lyn's favorite painting) is to throw her ashes onto the island. In the process, a huge wave swamps their boat and the Gran is washed overboard. The curse is broken because David can walk again when he returns to the mainland. We discover the curse was that Lu-Lyn screamed excessively in her father's ear and caused him to have the accident that killed him and his wife.
