Embellishing a story that’s suitable for children with some darker aspects and themes borrowed from popular horror is no mean feat but initial feedback from the children who have had a chance to experience the first few chapters of the book is good. They seem to love the fact that the character’s are unusual and a bit whacky and that whilst the story is funny and heartwarming it has a morbid, dreaded side as well.
Many other stories that are suitable for children stay on the light path and generally only glimpse into the darkness. This story goes right through the darkness and plays on suspense and fear but in a fun and not-too-scary way.
Any feedback received will be greatly taken into consideration. I’m all up for constructive criticism, after all it’s the only way to improve. I would love for readers to give me a good steer or point me in a direction I hadn’t thought of.
