Inside The Worm

Written by Robert Swindells

Inside The Worm Synopsis

The worm was close now. So close Fliss could smell the putrid stench of its breath. Its slavering jaws gaped to engulf her... Everyone in Elsworth knows the local legend about the monstrous worm - or dragon - that once terrorised the village. But it never really happened. Or did it? For when Fliss and her friends are chosen to re-enact the legend for the village Festival, the four who are to play the part of the worm dance as one across the ground. They are the worm. And Fliss begins to feel real fear. Somehow the worm itself is returning - with a thousand-year hunger in its belly, and a burning desire for vengeance...

Inside The Worm Press Reviews

Simply told but missing no opportunity to turn the screw of suspense * The School Librarian * A fascinating tale and genuinely frightening in places. Timing is the essence of a thriller and the brief chapters push the story forward relentlessly * Junior Bookshelf * Short, finely-paced chapters, action without melodrama, chill with garish theatricality . . . * Books for Keeps * Robert Swindells knows how to make readers horripilate * Daily Telegraph *
