Stories to make your hair curl...stories for reading strictly after dark.

When Gavin is given a metal detector for Christmas, he thinks he's going to turn up tonnes of treasure. How wrong can he be? Until he discovers the playground, that is, but the treasure he finds hidden there proves far more deadly than any pirate's loot. Far, far more deadly.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ary Nilandari | 6/15/2013

    " Ini karya awal Shaun Tan. Sebuah novel pendek dengan ilustrasi ala kadarnya. Kalau saja Shaun ada waktu untuk mengubah novel ini menjadi picture book tanpa kata yang menjadi kekuatannya. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy | 3/8/2013

    " It was kind of a bland story. Some of the drawings were good, but there weren't that many throughout the book. But it only took about 20 minutes to read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mimi | 3/3/2013

    " The ending was completely abrupt and confusing, which was sad because this book had a good creepiness going for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 11/30/2012

    " creepy in a very, very good way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty | 8/24/2012

    " A haunting tale, perhaps not for children, but I found it amazing. The drawings are so evocative; this is a book that will stick with you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suebee | 5/25/2012

    " RL 3.2 - great for boys, reluctant readers, had discussion qs in back "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 sweet pea | 3/18/2012

    " this vaguely-spooky chapter book has a vaguely-interesting plot that isn't fully explained. the illustrations, except one, are unexciting. a disappointment, coming from Tan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 12/12/2011

    " I couldn't decide whether to give it 4 stars for delicious creepiness (maybe I was too close to bedtime?), or 2 stars for being too simplistic in language and description. So the average of three wins. Short and fun, though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 10/11/2011

    " Come, come play with us... said the creepy girl in the park who only comes out when the sun goes down and the lights come on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 8/30/2011

    " Just the right amount of scary for Tweenies. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alsjem | 7/31/2011

    " Wow, powerful little story. Great for reluctant readers, especially boys. Includes questions for discussion in the back and some suggestions for writing. Could definitely be used in a creative way for teaching. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 5/20/2011

    " This series of teen books were written for the child that is having a hard time learning to read. It has a story line that will keep their attention without making them feel dumb. As always Shaun Tan's art is a joy to look at. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 9/19/2010

    " Would have loved this one as a kid. What makes this story are the creepy illustrations. Freaked me out. haha "
