Did you ever hear that telling a nightmare makes it fade away? It doesn’t. Not here anyway. Welcome to the Nightmare Club’s Halloween Sleepover. You might not last till morning.
When Dolly goes off to Irish College, she leaves her brother Sandy in charge of Princess Snowflake.
But the thing about guinea pigs is that you kind of need to feed them.
Or else …
PRAISE FOR THE NIGHTMARE CLUB SERIES
‘These are scary but also funny stories. … The books are illustrated with macabre black ink drawings and the gothic eerie appearance is maintained throughout.’ Books Ireland First Flush
‘Four perfectly horrid tales, guaranteed to goosebump the 7-10-year-olds. … great fun!’ Teresa Doran, BooksIreland
‘Ranging from the unsettling to the gruesome, the stories (in these four volumes) know how to build up tension and pack a punch. There’s also plenty of humour, enough to make you laugh … nervously.’ Bookfest 2011-2012 Recommended Reads 5-8
‘a colourful, attractive series … fun.’ Inis magazine
‘… the books are great … truly creepy, but great.’ Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories blog
‘(these) bring back some of that delicious thrill that marks a really good ghost story. … well written and highly entertaining.’ Des Kenny, Galway Advertiser
Annie Graves is twelve years old, and she has no intention of ever growing up. She is, conveniently, an orphan, and lives at an undisclosed address in the Glasnevin area of Dublin with her pet toad, Much Misunderstood, and a small black kitten, Hugh Shalby Nameless. You needn’t think she goes to school – pah! – or has anything as dull as brothers and sisters or hobbies, but let’s just say she keeps a large saucepan bubbling on the stove.Annie Graves is a prolific writer of children\'s books. She writes all the Nightmare Club titles HERSELF, but various authors CLAIM to have helped her: Deirdre Sullivan, Alice Stevens, Katherine Farmar, Oisín McGann, David Maybury, Sarah Purcell, Dave Rudden.Publisher’s note: We did try to take a picture of Annie, but her face just kept fading away. We have sent our camera for investigation, but suspect the worst. You\'ll just have to make do with an artist\'s impression of this amazing writer of children\'s books.
