Age 5+. Phantoms, ghosts, trick or treats, wild woods and being kidnapped- collectively it couldn’t be more scary. Will you be scared to death or do you enjoy getting goosebumps?


Scary Poems to make you Shiver by Susie Gibbs

Love that tingly feeling when you're scared? Want to give your sister or brother the shivers? This book is packed full of scary poems to enjoy alone (do you dare?), or to read to others. Ghosts, haunted houses, spiders, dracula, monsters and many more make an appearance in different spooky ways - by poets such as Charles Causley, Richard Edwards, Eric Finney, and Philip Gross. Get those goosebumps going!
