Traditional stories with a twist from around the world, suitable for independent reading/reading aloud. Great for bedtime, schooltime, anytime.
"Fascinating and powerful... any child who loves to be scared is sure to love these stories."
Guardian -Children 's Book of the Week
"A wonderful collection!"
"Illustrated with bright naivety and a sense of the bizarre...it marries the surreal and sinister to most enjoyable and just sufficiently hair-raising effect for children at the younger age of the spooky market."
"Andrew Fusek Peters's skill as an oral storyteller is evident in his retellings... you could read these stories aloud in the classroom with enormous pleasure or leave the book around for those who want to revisit a story in their own time.."
"This is a sumptuous and delightful book full of wicked and tricky stories - some will take the skin off the back of your neck, and others will tickle your toes...Ideal for families, bonfire-time, midnight parties with the lights out and under the covers with a torch."
