Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth Synopsis

Do you dare to read the Tales of Terror? A stunning and commercial new paperback package for this chilling collection of short stories, illustrated throughout by David Roberts and featuring a gloriously creepy new cover! A boy is put on a train by his stepmother to make his first journey on his own. But what should be a thrilling ride becomes weirder than anyone could have imagined when the train stalls at the mouth of a tunnel and an elegant woman in white offers to help the boy while away the hours by telling him stories. But these are stories with a difference - and each is more deliciously chilling than the last ... Who is this mysterious storyteller, and why are her tales so dark and macabre? Can't get enough spooky stories? Crack open the other thrilling titles in the Tales of Terror series: Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror and Tales of Terror from the Black Ship!
