Do you want to hear a ghost story? Well, gather closer.
Honestly,I’ve said this before but WHY are ghost stories aimed at CHILDREN always the creepiest. Maybe it’s because they’re written so you won’t have to think that hard and not written in House of Leaves style but christ, this book was creepy as hell and scared me as an adult.
Like the title states this is a short story collection of 13 stories complete with chilling illustrations.
Some are stories and some are poems and each pack a punch. My favorites are Depth and Epilogue but they’re all fairly good in their own right and honestly I don’t think I should have read this before bed because guess who had nightmares and woke up screaming again?
This is a fairly quick read and perfect for October, so ya know. Give it a spooky whirl.
