The Lovereading4Kids comment
Chris Priestley in his first book with Bloomsbury has written a book that is impossible to put down. Be warned however! The content is scary, no doubt about it. The book contains a series of short fast-paced horror stories, climaxing with the autobiographical account from the narrator Uncle Montague. Tales such as the Demon Bench End and The Path will have you cowering underneath your duvet and sleeping with the lights on so be aware, this book is bound to put the frighteners on any reader of any age. Despite the fear, or perhaps because of it, you'll be completely gripped from page one.

Uncle Montague's Tales Of Terror by Chris Priestley
Uncle Montague lives alone in a big house and his regular visits from his nephew give him the opportunity to relive some of the most frightening stories he knows. But as the stories unfold, a newer and more surprising narrative emerges, one that is perhaps the most frightening of all.
'My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book'
'Mesmerising, understated, and convincingly Victorian in tone ... A book for children who enjoy being frightened - and a perfect introduction to Saki and Edgar Allen Poe'
'Throbs with sinister brilliance ... The art of the chilling, well-crafted ghost story is still alive and kicking'
