9780747589228: Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror

Uncle Montague lives alone in a big house and his regular visits from his nephew give him the opportunity to relive some of the most frightening stories he knows. But as the stories unfold, a newer and more surprising narrative emerges, one that is perhaps the most frightening of all. Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror, it transpires, are not so much works of imagination as dreadful lurking memories. Memories of an earlier time in which Uncle Montague lived a very different life to his present solitary existence.

About the Author:

Chris Priestley lives in Cambridge. He is the author of The White Rider, Redwulf's Curse and Death and the Arrow, all published by Corgi. This is Chris's first book for Bloomsbury and he is currently working on his second. David Roberts was born in Liverpool and started working as a fashion illustrator in Hong Kong in 1993, but already had dreams of illustrating children's books after sharing a house with two other illustrators in Manchester. His talent was quickly spotted and since then David has worked with authors such as Philip Ardagh and Georgia Byng. He created the award-winning Dirty Bertie character.

Review:

Priestley's gothic fest of Poe-like fables stand out like shining beacons * Guardian * My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book * Sunday Telegraph * Mesmerising, understated, and convincingly Victorian in tone ... A book for children who enjoy being frightened - and a perfect introduction to Saki and Edgar Allen Poe * Guardian * Throbs with sinister brilliance ... The art of the chilling, well-crafted ghost story is still alive and kicking * Literary Review *
