There’s something very odd about Mr. Maan, the scientist who is helping teach Asim’s class about the moon. He spends a lot of time staring up at the night sky. Sometimes, he almost seems to glow. Asim is sure Mr. Maan is a supernatural being straight out of Guyanese folklore—and the whole town is in danger! His friend Rokshar thinks there’s a scientific explanation for everything Mr. Maan does. But she agrees that he’s up to no good. Can Asim and his friends find a way to stop Mr. Maan’s sinister plans?
Find out...if you dare! It's a new spooky series based on ghost stories from Guyana.
