Description - The Fire-Raiser by Maurice Gee

He let the matchstick burn, knowing the power in his hand... flame filled the inside of his head. It ran along his arteries. It licked around his bones.
Kitty Wix is knocked over as a strange loping figure is seen fleeing the burning stables. But who is the 'fire-raiser' and why is he creating such terror? Kitty has her own suspicions, and so do other children in the town. When the crazed man with fire in his head strikes again, the children find themselves in terrible danger.
A thrilling children's classic from the award-winning author of The Fat Man, Salt and Gool.
