Thirteen Terrifying Tales

Terry Deary

Have you ever read a book that can save your life before? Of course you haven't! That makes this the most brilliant book in the world. Learn what happens to these wicked children so it doesn't happen to you.
Don't stand there in the bookshop reading this. Make sure you BUY it! And buy a copy for all of your friends. Save their lives too.
Caution. The stories are so sad you may find the tears trickling down your legs. No one ever died of that. (At least I haven't heard of it.) But have a packet of tissues handy to mop up the tears and read on. Learn and live. (Maybe). Good luck.
