Tales of Terror from the Black Ship
Perched perilously on a stormy clifftop stands the Old Inn. Two poorly children, left home alone there while their father goes out to fetch the doctor, receive a visitor seeking shelter from the extreme weather who occupies the children by telling them stories. But these are no ordinary stories, each is more menacing and more macabre, more gruesome and more gory than the last. In the cold light of dawn the next day real life is even more grisly. Roberts' detailed illustrations add immensely to the creepy atmosphere of this gripping gothic horror story but Tales of Terror, like its predecessor, Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror (9780747589211), also reads perfectly aloud.
