In this eerie and unnerving collection, you will find some eerily chilling tales of the supernatural. Distinguished authors Joan Aiken, Robert Westall, Susan Price and Michael Morpurgo are just a few of the highly acclaimed writers who have contributed stories to this spooky collection. We meet a baby ghost in Ursula Moray Williams' 'A Ghost of One's Own', a cheeky modern boy ghost in Marjorie Darke's 'Hi, It's Me', a Victorian girl ghost with disturbing powers in Jane Gardam's 'Bang, Bang - Who's Dead?' and even a cat ghost in Gene Kemp's 'The Passing of Puddy'. Each one makes the unexplainable and unbelievable so real it will send tingles down your spine and scare you witless!
