Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth
Two earlier Tales of Terror volumes have whetted appetites, and the macabre tales of dysfunctional families and fractured relationships in this volume do not disappoint.
Priestley’s writing and Roberts’ spooky illustrations perfectly create a late nineteenth / early twentieth-century setting, in which children rebel against their uncaring or dictatorial parents, but suffer ghastly supernatural punishments for their own cruel or thoughtless behaviour.
The nine tales are contained within an other tale, each as delightfully horrible as the next, and perfect for dark winter nights, to be read out loud or to oneself.
