3.0 out of 5 stars good, but not good enough, 15 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror (Paperback)
This looked like such a good book, and it has it's own lovely little charm to it, but unfortunately, I just didn't find all the stories particularly engaging, although they were excellently written.

I like books for any age, that I can read again and again, sadly for me, this is a book I will only be reading once.

The illustrations however, are wonderful! Each one is cute and scary all in one! So I love this book, simply for the illustrations.

So this book is worth a read just once, as the stories, as i've said, have a lovely charm to them, but not enough to make me want to read any more by this author.

And from the point of view of a child (I'm not, but I can think like one if I try really hard!), this would be a really excellent set of scary stories for any child who likes little horror stories, they aren't so scary that you wont be able to sleep, but they are fun, and creepy, and make you think a little bit more. So for children aged 9+, I highly recommend this book!
