Welcome to the Nightmare Club, the sleepover that is definitely not for wimps. Annie Graves is your host, and she only invites guests who can tell really creepy stories.
You’ve heard of Dr Frankenstein, right? Freaky guy who cobbled together a MONSTER out of bits of people – spare parts, you might say. Well, he’s got nothing on Uncle Fraser, who’s a real live mad scientist.
Meet Fraser’s creations in Frankenkids – but don’t come snivelling to Annie if you’re sorry you ever opened this book … You’ve been warned!

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.
