Frieda Hughes, daughter of the poet Ted Hughes, has written three wonderfully scary stories. They are bleak, stark and guaranteed to send a chill down the spine of any young reader.
Three bizarre stories, each with a twist in the tail, are reminiscent of Roald Dahl's and Paul Jennings' short stories. From the weird Clockwork Dog with strangely human features, to the Granny possessed by a wicked spirit, to the Little Brother who concocts a special chemical to make things grow . . . each makes the hairs on your head tingle.
