It's halloween and death has come to the house, to get Eva but can Aiden come up with a plan to save his little sister or will death beat him to it?


Shadow Snatcher by Lou Kuenzler

Aiden and his little sister Eva are home alone on Halloween. When a stranger dressed up as Death rings the doorbell, Aiden's not fooled. He knows it's only Uncle Tony, and lets him straight in. But it's not Uncle Tony at all...Death has come for Eva, and he's not going to leave without her, unless Aiden can win in a bet to save Eva's life. But how can Aiden and Eva cheat Death?

About the Author

Lou Kuenzler

With a background as a theatre director and lecturer, Lou grew up on a remote sheep farm in Devon. There weren't many other children around so she used to put on plays with the chickens (absolutely true!) and tell stories to the lambs.

Lou now lives in London with her family and tells stories to them and to Willesden her dog. In this picture he is in the garden helping Lou write one of her Shrinking Violet books. Will says he came up with all the good jokes in that chapter!

Do have a read of Lou's books and see if you enjoy her funny stories … they are full of adventures, scrapes and mishaps (and a few APPALLING jokes which Willesden thinks are HILARIOUS!).

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
