A fantastic collection of ghost stories from today's leading children's authors: Derek Landy, Philip Reeve, Joseph Delaney, Susan Cooper, Eleanor Updale, Jamila Gavin, Mal Peet, Matt Haig, Berlie Doherty, Robin Jarvis and Sam Llewellyn

Derek Landy, Philip Reeve, Joseph Delaney, Susan Cooper, Eleanor Updale, Jamila Gavin, Mal Peet, Matt Haig, Berlie Doherty, Robin Jarvis and Sam Llewellyn have come together to bring you eleven ghost stories: from a ghost walk around York; to a drowned boy, who's determined to find someone to play with; to a lost child trapped in a mirror, ready to pull you in; to devilish creatures, waiting with bated breath for their next young victim; to an ancient woodland reawakened. Some will make you scream, some will make you shiver, but all will haunt you gently long after you've put the book down.

Reviews

Short stories are the perfect vehicle for a chilling slice of horror. An excellent balance of traditional and modern and a perfect pocket-money purchase for winter evenings.

Daily Mail

Brilliantly spooky ghost stories from the chilling pens of some top children's writers. These will leave readers just a little bit more wary of the world than when they began the collection.

Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading4Kids, Book of the Month

Plenty to haunt the mind.

Carousel

Readers who enjoy short stories are few and far between, but this just might be a book to change a few minds. The stories are, without exception, wonderful told and definitely - haunting!

Armadillo Magazine

Anyone who has guests round for Halloween and is searching for a good tale to read aloud, needs to look no further than Haunted.

CORK EVENING ECHO

Short and spectacular spooky stories, perfect for a creepy night in.

TBK Mag

Chillingly fabulous collection of stories to devour around the campfire or under the covers. But be warned; a book that is not for the faint of heart! You'll be laughing and screaming in equal measure, and I'm fairly sure you'll also be left wanting more.
