Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A brilliant counterpoint to Frankenstein, compellingly written. Chris Priestley goes from strength to strength." —Chris Riddell on Mister Creecher

 

"A dark, moving, creepy, funny tale about the making of a famous monster . . . only not the one you think it'll be. Splendid gothic stuff." —Kim Newman, author of Nightmare Movies, on Mister Creecher

 

"A wonderfully nightmarish journey of the imagination—old-fashioned storytelling at its best." —Daily Mail on the Tales of Terror books

 

"The gradual build-up of horror . . . is exquisitely done. My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book." —Sunday Telegraph on the Tales of Terror books

 

"Deliciously creepy with lots of twists and turns to keep young readers on edge." —Daily Mail on The Dead of Winter
