Overview

In Mary Hoffman's Dracula’s Daughter, when the Battys find a baby on their step, they decide to keep her. Angela grows up like any other child, until her teeth appear, sharp and pointed. At Halloween, more spooky things begin to happen too!

Next, in Penelope Lively's Debbie and the Little Devil, Debbie has no end of trouble with a little red devil who thinks it’s a great joke to cheat in every game they play. But Debbie likes to win as well, so she decides to trick him—using her own secret weapon!

Bomber Wilson hates writing, so he’s dreading keeping a nature diary—especially when bossy Harriet makes fun of his ideas. But Bomber’s fantastic discoveries in his garden at night make his diary more interesting than anyone could have imagined, in The Monster from Underground by Gillian Cross.

Chilling, full-color illustrations throughout from Chris Riddell, Valeria Petrone, and Chris Priestley add to the terror. Dare you open the cover of this spooky book?
