Matt Haig, Derek Landy, Philip Reeve, Joseph Delaney, Susan Cooper, Mal Peet, Berlie Doherty, Robin Jarvis, Eleanor Updale, Jamila Gavin and Sam Llewellyn have come together to bring you eleven spine-tingling stories. Watch your step as you take a ghost walk around the ancient city of York and a long-ago woodland which is reawakening. Be warned of the drowned boy who will stop at nothing to find someone to play with for all time. Look into the mirror, where a lost child lurks, ready to pull you in, and try not to cry out at the monstrous creatures prowling for their next victim. Some stories will make you scream, some will make you shiver – but all will haunt you long after you’ve put the book down . . .
"Short stories are the perfect vehicle for a chilling slice of horror. An excellent balance of traditional and modern and a perfect pocket-money purchase for winter evenings." * Daily Mail * "Brilliantly spooky ghost stories from the chilling pens of some top children's writers. These will leave readers just a little bit more wary of the world than when they began the collection." -- Julia Eccleshare * LoveReading4Kids, Book of the Month * "Plenty to haunt the mind." * Carousel * "Readers who enjoy short stories are few and far between, but this just might be a book to change a few minds. The stories are, without exception, wonderful told and definitely - haunting!" * Armadillo Magazine * "Anyone who has guests round for Halloween and is searching for a good tale to read aloud, needs to look no further than Haunted." * CORK EVENING ECHO *
