Ever felt the hairs on your neck rise at something a toddler says?
Inspired by the creepy things kids say and do, this collection of horror stories features unexpected frights, nervous giggles and often poignant reflections on life, childhood, and the terrors of growing up – such as when your new house gets a taste for human flesh.
And remember, when you hear your child calling for you in the middle of the night – the things that go bump in the night aren’t always under the bed.
From the mouths of babes come 37 stories, from the haunting to the hilarious to the horrific.
Leave the lights on tonight. So you’ll see them coming.
