About the Author:

Ruth Morgan hails from Carmarthen but now lives in Penarth. She is a primary school teacher in Cardiff and an experienced author of books for children of all ages, from picture books for toddlers to teenage novels.

Review:

A book aimed at scaring 9 to 12 year old readers! Ruth Morgan has put together a collection of seven spooky stories to be enjoyed at Halloween or when huddled on the sofa on a cold winters evening. The title character, the Matchstick Man, shocks Griff when he is downloading a photo on his computer and discovers the figure on the picture. But every time he looks at the photo, the matchstick man has moved to a different position. What is it up to? Then there is the smiley face which appears on the holiday house window - condensation perhaps? But more appear on other windows, with scary messages printed below them. Other tales involve a school sleepover in a Cardiff museum, a witch in a tree, a ghost zoner invented by Glyn which discovers ghosts in a shopping centre, a Mari Lwyd New Years Eve celebration, and a theatre ghost. The stories all have different settings and different ghostly characters. While the book is spooky, it will be enjoyed by young readers who quite enjoy being scared!
