Invasion plot from another dimension, using children's imagination as a vanguard, or 5th column. The kids plans & preparations are ignored as childish games, because that how adults treat children. A very traditional horror story. Because kids are creepy. You can imaging King writing it.


Brendan (mistershine) | 743 comments This one was cute but there's a theme developing here of kids murdering their parents.


RJ - Slayer of Trolls (hawk5391yahoocom) I liked this one a lot. Weird that my favorite stories in this collection seem to be about murderous children. What would Freud say?

Andrea | 2808 comments Did Brabury have children? He must have slept with one eye open at night wondering when they would come for him...
