This is a collection of scary tales for children. The little shorts take place in everyday settings, schools, camps and at home. It’s a quick read as all of the tales are only a few pages long and I like how they’re divided up in segments like home, school, camp and things that aren’t what they seem, so it’s easy to find something to suit the mood. This is a very clever collection, it would be perfect reading for around a campfire, with lots of little scares, twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading this and found it to be the perfect mix of anticipation, scariness and humour – especially in the story about the burping lake monster!
I would definitely recommend this and I will be buying a copy for my local Guide group as I know they’ll love this kind of thing. So this is a great read if you’re after something scary and creepy but not terrifying for your little ones. I’d give this four stars!
