Robert Harper is going back to school, and it is the first railway journey he has ever made alone. And it is not a very usual sort of railway journey.

The train stops at the tunnel's mouth and in order to help whileaway the time, a strange woman dressed in white tells Robert stories. But these are not the kind of stories normally told to a child. Soon Robert is both entranced and terrified by the strange woman and her macabre stories....

Eleven more spine-chilling tales for older children from best-selling author Chris Priestley.

    " The story is very much in a similiar format to Tales of Terror from the Black Ship, another book of tales by the author. The tales develop when a boy takes his first train journey alone and is warned by his stepmother that something doesnt feel right. A lady on the train tells him stories to pass the time and this leads to an interesting twist at the end. I really did enjoy this book and the macbre tales which ran through it. Even though the book is especially written for children, I think adults will enjoy this to. A real sense of fun throughout. Well written and well told. Looking forward to reading the other book. "

    " When I read the blurb I was intrigued; horror was a genre I rarely delved into and so the blurb led me to believe that this book would be a good introduction for a newbie to horror. Having read the book, my opinion remains the same; Tales of Terror is definitely a book for people starting out in this genre. However, the stories for me personally were not scary and I did not find myself eagerly reaching for this book as I normally do with others. But the book did succeed in maintaining a sinister atmosphere, particularly around the 'woman in white' and the structure gave the book a steady flow making it easy to read. "

    " An enjoyable, quick read. I thought this one was a little bit creepier than Uncle Montague - particularly the ending, which was a little reminiscent of the Chronicles of Narnia, in a dark way. Definitely worth a read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S | 12/23/2013

    " It has just the right amount of horror. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 12/7/2013

    " The stories were sinister and macabre and I really enjoyed the illustrations, which reminded me of Edward Gorey. Why weren't there books like this when I was a kid?? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 shadesofmaybe | 12/7/2013

    " What can I say? I just love it as I love all of Priestley's Tales of Terror. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly | 10/25/2013

    " Another creepy installment in the series. I love the pen and ink drawings and the overarching story that brings the little vignettes together. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria Shabanova | 10/25/2013

    " Amazingly written. Short creepy stories of the truly scary kind, all set within another story of a teen boy going on a train, and getting into a scary story of his own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 10/2/2013

    " This was fun to read, but I couldn't help comparing it to the first book in the series, which, in my opinion, was better. Some of the stories I really enjoyed, particularly 'A New Governess' and 'Gerald'. On the other hand, some of the others were quite predictable and/or boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michellious | 6/6/2013

    " The stories and overall plot were predictable enough and not quite as haunting as i had wished them to be. However, the book was a delight to read and nevertheless entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethnoir | 9/8/2012

    " Great stories as usual, not quite as enamoured by the denouement as previous books, but still excellently spooky. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 3/14/2012

    " Absoloutly brilliant! I loved the other two Tales of Terror books and I loved this one! Can't wait to get them at the book store next Wednesday! "

    " quite good thought it was spooky "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seraph [sparks fly] | 6/7/2011

    " This was AMAZING. Seriously, from the delightfully chilling tales to the creeping side-story, I loved this book to the core. There was no part I didn't like... READ IT. YOU HAVE TO. Aw, and the ending was just... Perfect! Not all happy, but just perfect for the book. No doubt about it, 5 stars!!! "

    " YAY!! Another one of these books!! I was so happy when I saw it in the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 5/12/2010

    " Another great book by Priestly! The stories were so creative and interesting. Even though the book isn't directed towards my age group I really enjoyed it. The book ended with an interesting little twist. I look forward to reading more "Tales of Terror." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 3/3/2010

    " While waiting for their father to come home, a brother and sister sit and listen to an old sea man as he tells them spooky tales of his travels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ollie | 8/11/2009

    " I don't normally read "scary" books; however I thought this was a pirate book. It scared me so I eventually had to quit reading it. If you are into ghostly/scary stories on a dark night, this book is for you. BTW it is a juvenile book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/22/2009

    " i LOVED this book! it had a totally shocking ending. it was really good! "
