Not nearly as atmospheric or gripping as Uncle Montague s Tales of Terror, but brilliantly macabre nonetheless Although the short stories do improve throughout, they re a far cry from thecompelling tales that I know Chris Priestley can write Worth the read, but the other two books in the trilogy are much better. Another great collection of scary stories, this one has a nautical theme Fantastic read for a Halloween read aloud or listen to the audio version read by Bill Wallis This series keeps getting better and better, I m looking forward to reading the third book 4.5 stars Another favourite from Priestley, can t wait to read the 3rd one. This book of macabre tales connected with the sea reminds me of the short stories of William Hope Hodgson Priestley writes in a Victorian, gothic style, and the eerie black and white drawings by David Roberts, reminiscent of those of Edward Gorey, add to that atmosphere Cathy and Ethan are sick at the seaside inn where they live, waiting during a fearsome storm for their father to return with the doctor A knock on the door brings a young sailor seeking shelter from the wind and rain Thackera This book of macabre tales connected with the sea reminds me of the short stories of William Hope Hodgson Priestley writes in a Victorian, gothic style, and the eerie black and white drawings by David Roberts, reminiscent of those of Edward Gorey, add to that atmosphere Cathy and Ethan are sick at the seaside inn where they live, waiting during a fearsome storm for their father to return with the doctor A knock on the door brings a young sailor seeking shelter from the wind and rain Thackeray, who entertains them with gruesome and horrible tales In between stories Thackeray tells the children about himself, and the reader begins to suspect that he has some sinister purpose in being there The ending was totally unexpected and I loved it Stories within a story a great way to draw the reader in and keep him reading I didn t want this book to end, and can t wait to get my hands on another book by this author Highly recommended great Halloween reading Last week the Cornish coast was lashed by storms I was tucked up at home with a book, with waves outside crashing against the sea wall and being forced up over the promenade and the road Our garden was soaked by the spray and the downstairs windows got a salt water rinse It s a marvellous sight when you re inside, secure in the knowledge that your home has withstood a multitude of storms over a hundred years andAnd in the pages of my book two children looked out on a similar storm Eth Last week the Cornish coast was lashed by storms I was tucked up at home with a book, with waves outside crashing against the sea wall and being forced up over the promenade and the road Our garden was soaked by the spray and the downstairs windows got a salt water rinse It s a marvellous sight when you re inside, secure in the knowledge that your home has withstood a multitude of storms over a hundred years andAnd in the pages of my book two children looked out on a similar storm Ethan and Cathy were home alone, in an inn on the edge of a Cornish cliff They had been sick and their widowed father had set out through the storm to fetch the doctor After he left they felt better and got up to watch out for his return But the man who appeared outside was not their father, but a young sailor Where had he come from What was he doing out on such a night While Ethan hesitated Cathy granted the man admission to the inn And they stuck a bargain The man, Thackery, would be given refreshment and shelter from the storm, and in exchange he would tell the children stories of the sea Wonderful stories Filled with all of the traditional elements of sea stories yet fresh and new Each one simple,clear and engaging and holding a striking twist Favorites A compelling tale where the ship s cat plays a central role The story of two sailors who visit a tattoo parlour in a foreign port with extraordinary consequences And, for me, the most haunting tale told of a child picked up from a small boat adrift And as the stories unfold Ethan begins to wonder where his father is and why Thackery has come Ethan asks questions Thackery tells nothan he wants to, and deflects attention by offering upstories Until the final tale, which explains everything, twisting, not just once, but twice Everything is executed just perfectly the words of Chris Priestley and the illustrations of David Roberts Yes, the format is the same as their previous work, Uncle Montague s Tales of Terror, but it works This volume is distinctive enough to stand up in its own right and just that little bitsophisticated than its predecessor Perfect reading for the season and I look forward to the next volume Though the individual stories are not as frightening as its prequel nor the ending as satisfying, it still gives you chill and makes you second guess your decision to read it alone late at night Recommended for both young and mature horror fans 3.5 stars.This book has the same structure as Priestley s earlier This is the sequel to the wonderful Uncle Montague s Tales of Terror which I read last year Being a bit of a scaredy cat, this book, which is really a childrens book age range 9 12 approx , is about as scary as I go without needing to leave the light on at night.It s a collection of short stories told to two children on a dark stormy night by a stranger who needs shelter from the raging storm outside.As in the previous book, some tales are scarier than others The Scrimshaw Imp , Irezu This is the sequel

auf dem ein schwerer Sturm tobt Als ein geheimnisvoller junger Mann an die T r des unheimlichen alten Hauses klopft und bittet, sich w hrend des Unwetters unterstellen zu d rfen, bringen die Kinder es nicht bers Herz, ihn drau en stehen zu lassenW hrend drau en der Sturm immer heftiger tobt, entdeckt drinnen der Fremde, dass die Kinder eine Vorliebe f r schaurige Geschichten haben und sein Vorrat scheint unersch pflich zu sein Die grausigste Entdeckung machen die beiden jedoch, als der Sturm sich gelegt hat und der neue Tag anbricht I loved this book, loved everything about this book, the
