Availability: Ready to download

'It's not just the weather outside...' Here are five tales of festive terror, from the author of 'Corner House', and the short story collections, 'A Very Bad Year,' and 'Unlucky Numbers'. In 'A Door or a Window?' Nicola has more than a bad experience with an advent calendar - the daily treats are not what's expected. But getting rid of it is harder than she thought...

In 'A Door or a Window?' Nicola has more than a bad experience with an advent calendar - the daily treats are not what's expected. But getting rid of it is harder than she thought... In 'Wreck The Halls', Dale needs a Christmas tree to stop his partner from moaning at him, but why pay when you can steal one from the garden of the abandoned house at the end of the lane? Nobody sees him take it. But that doesn't mean he can get away with it... In 'Secret Sandra', the staff of Torrington Brook High School are celebrating the end of term with the traditional round of gifts. Only, some of them have been swapped for something far more sinister... In 'A Ghost at Burrows Manor,' the children of Bright Horizons Care Home are looking forward to their seasonal stay at the old manor house. A ghost story is shared, which sets them all on edge, and with good reason. There is definitely something out in the snow… In 'The Last Present', It's Christmas lunch at the Seymour house, and Declan is meeting Holly's parents for the first time. They're worlds apart in terms of wealth and class, and Dec is right to be a little nervous. But not in the ways he imagined... 'Frightful' contains three brand new stories. Two others previously available in earlier collections. Online praise for 'A Very Bad Year': 'Every story is so different... keeps you wondering what the author will come up with next.' 'Good storylines... very believable situations.' 'Really captivating and very special.'
