Creepy Customers by Sam Hay

This is so boring! Steve is earning his pocket money by working in his dad's chemist shop. He wants to be outside skateboarding and tree climbing. Finally, a few customers start to trickle in. A lady with a large nose and a big black hat asks for some wart cream, a man with a long cape and big teeth asks for some plasters and a lot of toothpaste, and a very, very hairy man buys some nail clippers and an extra strong comb. Oh I get it, there must be a fancy dress party nearby, thinks Steve. But then a headless man on a horse comes into the shop for some extra strong throat lozenges. Steve asks the man how he does the trick. He's about to get the biggest shock of his life...

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!

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

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’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
