Derek Landy (Scepter of the Ancients), Philip Reeve (Mortal Engines), Joseph Delaney (Revenge of the Witch), Susan Cooper (The Dark Is Rising), Eleanor Updale (Montmorency), Jamila Gavin (Coram Boy), Mal Peet (Keeper), Matt Haig (Samuel Blink and the Forbidden Forest), Berlie Doherty (The Goblin Baby), Robin Jarvis (The Dark Portal), and Sam Llewellyn (Little Darlings) have come together to offer 11 ghost stories. The stories include a drowned boy who is determined to find someone to play with; a lost child trapped in a mirror, ready to pull you in; devilish creatures, waiting with bated breath for their next young victim; and an ancient woodland reawakened. Some will make you scream, some will make you shiver, but all will haunt you gently long after you’ve put the book down.
