Tales of Terror From the Black Ship
Chris Priestley

Ages: 7-11

Not for the faint-hearted, Tales of Terror from the Black Ship is a novel packed with chills, thrills, nail-biting suspense and heart-stopping revelations. With a brand new story and an exciting commercial jacket treatment

At the Old Inn, which clings unsteadily on a cliff top above a storm-lashed ocean, two sick children are left alone while their father fetches the doctor. Then a visitor comes begging for shelter, and so begins a long night of storytelling, in which young Ethan and Cathy, who have an unnatural appetite for stories of a spooky nature, sit out the last of the storm in the company of a sailor with more than enough grisly tales to satisfy them.
