In the media

First in a brand new series... First class introduction to the world of horror - James Preller has hit the nail right on the head with this one.
Books Monthly
...just the thing for children looking for a wee bit of a fright for Halloween. It isn't overly gruesome, or the type of thing that might seriously traumatise a younger sibling, but just scary enough for a delicious thrill for older children and tweens.
The Bookbag
With their spine-tingling illustrations by the talented Iacopo Bruno and stories to chill your blood, this new series of scary (but not too scary!) books are set to become creepy classics.
