Product Description

Review

“A marvellously powerful book. An unusually effective story which combines sensitivity, realism and horror.”
Books for Keeps

“History doesn’t get more real than this.”
Sunday Times

From the Back Cover

Colin and Prill are looking forward to their holiday in Ireland. But almost from the moment they arrive, Colin feels sick from an awful smell, so powerful and horrible that it seems to be rising from the land of the dead. At the same time, Prill is visited by a strange creature creeping into her dreams.

An atmospheric ghost story, inspired by the Irish potato famine.

Black Harvest written by Ann Pilling is all about a family who go on holiday to Ireland and land themselves on a history of DEATH and STARVATION.

At the beginning this book drags on but if you read on it turns into an exciting, touching and slightly scary story.

Colin and Prill are stuck with there weedy cousin Oliver who questions everything that they do to find out whether or not there allowed to do things or not.

This has happened after being brought strictly in London whilst being very ill.

This book is for people who enjoy horror and creepy stories.

There father is away working,there mother has to go to a hospital with the baby and the kids are left ill and in despair.

What will happen to them?

Will the baby be ok?

Will they ever get home alive?

Read this and find out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Format: Paperback
The story starts fine enough and the story itself is well- written. However, the authore didn't tie up the loose ends neatly enough for every occurrence in the book. The theme itself it not very excellently developed and the ending left readers wanting a more satisfying and 'finished' conclusion.

I first read this for school in Yr 7. It's a creepy story about 3 children who go to stay in Ireland for the summer. Colin and Prue don't like their weedy cousin Oliver, especially as he doesn't seem affected by the ghostly smells and sights they're seeing, but they have to work togtehr to save their baby sister, who's dieing of a famine from the centuries before...
