I loved this wickedly dark collection of short stories, which all offer horrifying and inventive updates of beloved children’s classics such as the Little Mermaid, the Velveteen Rabbit and the Wind in the Willows. Most of the horror here is psychological, taking the threads of each story and twisting them just enough to send shivers up your spine. Perfect for Hallowe’en, these are stories to savour on grey days and to keep you awake through pitch-black nights.
