Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror
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 and his regular visits from his nephew give him the opportunity to retell some of the most frightening stories he knows.
But as the stories unfold, another even more spine-tingling 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.
This clever collection of stories-within-a-story is perfectly matched with dark, witty illustrations by David Roberts.
