Having read and enjoyed Chris Priestley's full-length ghost story The Dead of Winter, I was inspired to look into his other work - actually in the hope that he might have written some ghostly fiction for adults, but when I came across this little volume of tales at just 49p for Kindle, I couldn't resist snapping it up.

Recommends it for: anyone who likes M.R. James or ghost/creepy stories!
I have read Priestley's other collections of short ghost/horror stories - Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror, Tales of Terror from the Black Ship, and Tales of Terror from the Tunnel's Mouth.

I love these books! This was a short one written for world book day but the tales are brilliant. If you are thinking about reading the Tales of Terror books you should defiantly get this one to start you off. It gives you an introduction to the fun of his other books and it's so cheap on the kindle. Wonderful!

As with his previous books. ''Tales of Terror from the Black Ship' and 'Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror', Chris Priestley brings another collection of tales of terror to scare school children everywhere. The stories are definitely for sharing.

His father was in the army and so he moved around a lot as a child and lived in Wales. He was an avid reader of American comics as a child, and when he was eight or nine, and living in Gibraltar, he won a prize in a newspaper story-writing competition. He decided then “that my ambition was to write and illustrate my own book”.
He spent his teens in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, before moving to Manchester,...more
