Description
This spine-tingling novel has more than enough fear factor for the most ardent fan of scary stories. Uncle Montague lives alone in a big house, but regular visits from his nephew, Edgar, give him the opportunity to recount some of the frightening stories he knows. As each tale unfolds, an eerie pattern emerges of young lives gone awry in the most terrifying of ways. Young Edgar begins to wonder just how Uncle Montague knows all these ghastly tales. This clever collection of stories-within-a-story is perfectly matched with darkly witty illustrations by David Roberts.
Look for the other spine-tingling book in Chris Priestley's Tales of Terror series, Tales of Terror from the Black Ship!

        February 1, 2008
        Gr 5-8-Ghosts, demons, jinns, and deadly trees populate these 10 chilly short stories set in the late 19th century, with the language and black-and-white illustrations capturing the feel of Victorian times. Young Edgar hears these tales while visiting his eccentric Uncle Montague, and each one is connected to a strange object in his uncle's study. Trees are at the center of "Climb Not" and "Winter Pruning," the former featuring an elm with a murderous occupant, the latter a blind old woman and badly behaved boys who are transformed into trees that need painful pruning. "The Un-Door" is the passage to a life trapped inside a doll's house for fake spiritualist Harriet. In the particularly scary "The Demon Bench End," Thomas steals part of an old church bench that he is drawn to, only to find it possessed by a demon. "Jinn," the only story not set in England, tells the story of Francis, who ignores the children in a small Turkish village and ventures too close to what he thinks is a girl in rags. The mirror inside "The Gilt Frame" exposes Christina's horrible deeds, and in "Offerings" and "A Ghost Story" readers learn to pay attention to haunted-house tales. The last story reveals why Uncle Montague must stay in his house guarding the stories, objects, and ghosts he has accumulated. An enjoyable collection with enough creepy atmosphere (and some gruesome action) to hold readers' attention."Terrie Dorio, Santa Monica Public Library, CA"
