Skeleton Keys: Win this sumptuously spooky series

Imaginary friends, families transforming into paintings, and a terrifying Nobody... Halloween's definitely round the corner!

Greetings! My name is Skeleton Keys and these fantabulant fingers of mine can open doors to hidden worlds…

Shudder! These spooky, darkly funny tales from Guy Bass and Pete Williamson are perfect for snuggling up with as the autumn nights draw in...

From the strange and fabulous imagination of Guy Bass comes the Skeleton Keys series, in which an imaginary friend can suddenly become unimaginary; a big Nobody scours the land looking for a physical form; a girl's parents transform into paintings; a legendary thief with a gap in his teeth finds himself in possession of a very important artefact; and your wildest imaginings can come true...

Full of mystery and adventure, Skeleton Keys is the perfect series for children aged 6+, full of weird and wonderful new vocabulary and some marvellous monsters - with each story ultimately about friendships, fitting in and being confident in yourself.
