Dervla is the babysitter from hell – literally. She’s very strict, she eats spiders, and … are those horns? No wonder Becky is everybody’s hero when she manages to rid the neighbourhood of the demon babysitter.
Don’t ask how, but hey, pssst, there are vomit-coloured stink bombs, there is an abandoned shed, there is demon-food.
You have been warned.
PRAISE FOR THE NIGHTMARE CLUB SERIES
‘a colourful, attractive series … fun.’ Inis magazine
‘… the books are great … truly creepy, but great.’ Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories blog

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.
