Overview

You've seen them on the TV, now read the original stories! This is the fourth in the Grizzly Tales series of books. A raucous book filled with demented and horrible children who get their just desserts. Luscious writing spiced up with injections of carbolic humour. Are you a day dreamer? A bad loser? A nose-picker? Nothing wrong with that, you might think. But read on and see how grizzly these children can be… Twenty stomach-churning cautionary tales, including Revenge of The Bogeyman, The Upset Stomach and Bunny Boy.  Grizzly Tales For Gruesome Kids is a series of modern morality tales for children. In each story a horrid, sadistic, brute of a child meets his or her deservedly grotesque end.“Be warned – Jamie Rix’s splendidly nasty short stories can be genuinely scary, but as the protaganists are obnoxious brats with names like Peregrine and Tristram, you may find yourself cheering as they meet their sticky ends.” Independent on Sunday  "These are moral tales told in a honey-lush prose spiced with salutory bolts of carbolic and with an amoral relish for the deserving victims' ghastly Nemeses." Books For Keeps “Mix Dahl with Belloc and you can anticipate with glee these tales of Jamie Rix. Even William Brown’s antics pale beside noisy chocoholic Serena Slurp…” Daily Telegraph “Fifteen well-crafted stories each show how the disorderly and the fantastic lurk just beneath the ordinary and the workaday. A smashing summer evening’s dipping-into trove this one.” The Guardian “An excellent book of stories for all but the most timid…the accumulation of grimness is also part of the effect, so older children can enjoy this collection by themselves and adults can have a marvellous time reading them to younger ones.” Books for your Children
