The Frighteners

Written by Pete Johnson

The Frighteners Synopsis

On the back of the picture were two words which jumped right out at me: THE FRIGHTENERS... When Chloe starts at a new school, she gets off to a really bad start and no-one wants to be her friend - except Aidan. But everyone else seems scared of Aidan - scared of the pictures he draws. Chloe can't imagine why until she picks up one of his drawings of 'The Frighteners'. For now the Frighteners - horrifying monstrous creatures - won't leave her alone...
