S.C.R.E.A.M: Carnival of Monsters

Publisher: Usborne

There are no such things as monsters, mummies or zombies, Bunny assures her little brother Arthur on the way home from the carnival. Likewise, the legend of the terrifying winged ‘demon dog’ is nothing but superstitious nonsense.  If Bunny is right, how is it that Arthur disappears that night, carried away from their house by something horrible, dark and clawed? 

Thankfully, paranormal crime-solving duo Charley Steel and Billy Flint are on hand. Taking on the case of disappearing schoolboys, they come up against some pretty terrifying creatures, as well as uncovering the fact that bullying and revenge has a sizeable part to play in the mystery. 

Spooky supernatural activity is mixed here with plenty of humour to create the right balance of action, fun and thrills. Sharp-witted Charley makes a spectacular wheelchair-using protagonist, alongside streetwise partner Billy.

One of a series of S.C.R.E.A.M titles, but sufficiently self-contained to be read as a stand-alone.
