Two spooky stories from double-Carnegie-winner, Berlie Doherty. Dark and atmospheric these two tales send a chill down the spine. A desolate winter moor is the backdrop to the first story of a haunting friendship, and, in the second, when the past comes back to haunt Charlie, it becomes impossible to tell what is real and what isn't. * Diamond/Band 17 books offer more complex, underlying themes to give opportunities for children to understand causes and points of view. * Text type: Two stories by a significant author. * A feelings bar chart on pages 54-55 show the rise and fall in the narrators emotions during the first story, Nightmare. * Curriculum links: Citizenship: Living in a diverse world. * This book has been quizzed for Accelerated Reader.
