Tiddles

I received this copy from the publisher.9780143307372By: S.Carey

Part of the Eerie series

Ben and Cathy are left with their creepy aunt Pam whilst their parents go looking for a new house. They don’t want to be there, their aunt is strange and has gotten worse since her husband and cat died. They aren’t their long when it becomes clear that Pam is insane. Ben and Cathy were sure her cat was dead, so why does Pam leave food out for it still?

This is a gruesome, gory and dark story. It is horror simply told. The tension is there and it is kind of gross, zombie cats included. Don’t however give this series to your kids if they are easily scared or prone to nightmares. Best for 8-9 years.

Killer App

Part of the Eerie series

Roma’s friend Michael is part of a gaming group and has gotten his hands on a brand new app. They and three of their friends are going to test it out. It sounds fun, who wouldn’t want an app that caters to your dreams. It doesn’t take long for the dreams to turn to nightmares. How are they going to get out of this game?

One of the Eerie series. The tone of these books is dark, descriptors are gruesome and the tension is tight. Don’t let the large print format fool you, the covers say it all – these are horror books for young readers. The scary content makes these for slightly older readers but the format keeps them in the younger age range I’d have to say they are probably best for 8-9 years.
