This title features nine stories of spine-tingling suspense. It contains fictional frighteners such as "Dr Faustus", "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and Sherlock Holmes' famous encounter with the "Hound of the Baskervilles". It includes: terrifying true stories, including the cursed Aborigine Kinjika and the body-snatchers Burke and Hare. Dramatic illustrations by Graham Howells and David Leith bring these ghastly characters vividly to life - but your own imagination will add horrors of its own! It is exciting reading for (brave) 8- to 12-year-olds. The fearful fictional figures of the blood-sucking vampire Count Dracula, Victor Frankenstein's living-dead creation, and the evil magic of an Egyptian mummy's tomb are frightening enough...but the true stories that join them in this chilling collection are no less gruesome. Here you will meet unscrupulous dealers in human remains, a murderous barber whose victims were devoured by their unknowing fellow citizens, and a curse that clawed its victims to the grave across thousands of years. Read these tales of terror - if you dare!
