‘The Horror Handbook,’ by Paul van Loon, illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

A Halloween must-have for all would-be monster hunters aged 9-11 years old (or above). But BEWARE , this horrifying handbook is only for the very bravest of readers…

Lurking within the pages of this terrifying tome are loads of tips and trivia about ghosts, ghouls and zombies (to name but a few.)  A humorous guide to the word of things that go bump in the night, Paul van Loon’s Horror Handbook is a fun and fascinating reference book for wannabe Van Helsings (look him up!)

If you’ve ever wondered what happened to vampires when they come into sunlight (or how to spot a daring modern day vampire in disguise) then look no further – this is the guide for you.  Handily organised into themed chapters, you will quickly be able to look up your monster of choice in an emergency situation.  There are also sections on horror films and classic horror books for when you aren’t busy hunting monsters.

A ghoulishly great translation (originally in German) with freakishly fabulous illustrations from Axel Scheffler.
