9780007106011: Three Scary Stories

Frieda Hughes, daughter of the poet Ted Hughes, has written three wonderfully scary stories. They are bleak, stark and guaranteed to send a chill down the spine of any 8 – 12 year old. A true Halloween title and a great gift for boys.

Three bizarre stories, each with a twist in the tail, are reminiscent of Roald Dahl’s and Paul Jennings’ short stories. From the weird Clockwork Dog with strangely human features, to the Granny posessed by a wicked spirit, to the Little Brother who concocts a special chemical to make things grow… each makes the hairs on your head tingle.

What two boys said about the stories:

I enjoyed reading the story, Little Brother. In some places it was extremely funny, and in others it sort of scared the reader and made their feet feel tense and alert. A very good read. Santosh Joshi, aged 9

The story, The Clockwork Dog, is interesting with a clear plot, great characters and once you start rading it, it captures you and you just have to know what happens the that dog, Blackie. Funny and scary. Tom Allan, aged 9

About the Author:

Frieda Hughes is the daughter of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. She is well-known as an artist, as well as an author for children, and has had many exhibitions. She is married to the Australian/Hungarian artist Laszlo Lukacs. Frieda has given readings of her own poetry in the States, where she is particularly well-received.

From the Back Cover:

'Guaranteed to give you nightmares...'

Have you ever been so terrified your heart pounds, your blood freezes, a cold shiver slithers down your back, and you really believe your next breath will be your last?

Three scary stories, three terrifying tales: a spider's web which catches more than flies... a gift from your granny which you never want to get... and a wish that goes horribly wrong...
