Reviews

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 *
