Summary

From malevolent snowmen to Father Christmas - with a difference - Chris Priestley is on absolute top form with these seven atmospheric, clever, and thoroughly chilling stories. Add a new kind of thrill to the fluffiest of seasons with these brilliantly conceived examples of why you'd better be good at Christmas time.

These perfectly formed festive tales of terror - "The Green Man", "The Musical Box", "The Snowman", "Frost", "In the Bleak Midwinter", "Soot", and "The Last Present" - each have a gripping yarn and genius twist. Singing carols may never seem quite the same again - especially after dark....

slightly disappointing

i have really like the tales of terror series and how there are short stories within a story but this one was slightly disappointing because these are just short stories.

i have always enjoyed the way that chris priestley has approached the wirting of the series, scary not just for children but also a 21 year old with an overactive imagination.
