  • Short Description
This collection of spooky stories is perfect for Halloween night, sleepovers, and campfires. A frightening trip to the past, where a hangman delivered, to today, where vampires use dating apps. Enjoy fun frights like the reason Sasquatch are rarely seen and what is buried in the grave of Mikey Dunbar.
A creepy collection of spooky short stories perfect for reading out loud any time you want the fun of a good fright.

Boo! See, scared you already. This collection of short, spooky stories is perfect for reading out loud on Halloween night, at a sleepover, or around the campfire. Jeremy John takes you on a frightening trip to the past, where Wild West criminals meet the hangman and brave knights battle monsters in the forest, through to today, where young vampires find victims through dating apps and spirits possess smart speakers.

Turn out the lights, grab a flashlight, hide under the blankets, and enjoy the fun frights of ghosts who feed on trick-or-treating kids, a pumpkin patch that hides a terrible secret, and who — or what — is buried in the grave of Mikey Dunbar.

  • Light reading for Halloween with silly, scary, spooky plots to delight family and friends
  • Appropriate to read aloud to children
  • Ten campfire tales that are chilling with moments of humour
  • Vinyl Café fans will be delighted
