The Lovereading4Kids comment

It’s the perfect time of year for scary stories and there’s a wonderfully varied selection in this excellent collection all written by prize-winning children’s authors. For example, Michael Rosen retells a couple of scary folk tales to deliver thrills with a moral, while Jamie Rix describes the misery suffered by a man whose school dinners return to haunt him – a ghastly thought indeed! Bel Mooney’s story shows that a powerful imagination is not always a good thing, while Ruth Ainsworth tells a ghostly story of loss and remembrance. Chosen by an experienced children's bookseller, the stories are just right for either newly confident independent readers or for sharing with an adult. ~ Andrea Reece
