Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror

(3 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Braving the walk through the dark wood, Edgar visits Uncle Montague’s house to listen to his stories, all of which seem to be linked to the strange objects that fill his old, rambling house.

These stories are always chilling and scary and the more Edgar hears the more it becomes apparent that Uncle Edgar is somehow curiously involved in these gruesome encounters.

These spine-tingling stories-within-a-story are the stuff of childhood nightmares, with a good smattering of ghosts, demons, blood and gore. The tension and unease builds up nicely throughout.

Well written, well-paced and accompanied by perfect creepy illustrations, this is a wonderful book for children who like to be spooked!
