Description


Light the candles and shut the door, The Wrong Train is a deliciously creepy and scarily good collection of scary stories, complete with terrifying illustrations from Dave Shelton. Perfect for fans of Patrick Ness, R.L. Stine, and Emily Carroll.Imagine you've just managed to catch your train and you realize it's the wrong one. You'd be annoyed of course, but not scared . . . Yet.Imagine you get off the wrong train at the next station hoping to catch one back the way you came. But the station is empty. Again, you'd be annoyed, but not scared . . . Yet.Imagine someone comes to the station, a stranger who starts to tell you stories to help pass the time. But these aren't any old stories--they're nightmares that come with a price to pay. And you want them to stop. Scared yet? You will be.

Praise For…


Advance Praise:"Scare yourself silly with this cracking collection that carries a very apt warning on the cover: not for passengers of a nervous disposition." --Daily Express (UK)"Sublimely spine-tingling. . . . The writing is taut, electric as exposed wiring, and conjures an exquisitely vivid sense of dread." --LoveReading4Kids (online)"The eight stories are all macabre masterpieces, unsettling and creepy, making you view everyday objects in and seemingly harmless events in an entirely different light. The stories are haunting in every sense of the word and will stay with you long after you've turned the final page." --Crime Review UK (online)"Will leave you positively chilled to the bone." --Empire of Books (online)
