Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A spine-tingling collection of horror stories by the author of Redwall!

What if revenge were a monster of your own creation? If all you needed to summon this monster was enough hatred and enough imagination? Which of you would really be the monster? One boy is about to find out.

The New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques (Loamhedge; The Angel's Command) spins six all-new tales of horror and suspense. Read on, but be careful of what brews in your heart. You may just find yourself the next victim of the Ribbajack...

Review:

"The plots are familiar and at times feel fragmentary, but Jacques's deft wordplay and masterly tone add compensatory gusts of pleasurable thrills." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Some children will be reminded of Roald Dahl, but Jacques, a natural-born storyteller, is very much the master of his own material and writes tales that almost demand to be read aloud — at night, in a darkened room, by flickering candle or firelight." Booklist

Review:

"Sly humor and suspenseful plotting will keep readers' interest engaged....Lovers of the Redwall and Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series will want to read these stories, which will appeal most strongly to Jacques's fans." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

"New York Times" bestselling author Jacques ("Loamhedge: The Angel's Command") spins six all-new tales of horror and suspense.
