Description-

  • 2017 Silver Birch Express Award — Shortlisted • 2017 Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award — Shortlisted • 2017 Diamond Willow Award — Shortlisted

    The second instalment in a series of scary tall tales from acclaimed children's novelist Philippa Dowding.
    I will never leave this car, the back seat reeks of everything my little brother has ever eaten, and that thing is still out there ...
    Myles and his family have been driving for four days. It's their final night on the road, but Myles knows they will never arrive at their new house. It will never stop raining. And even if they do get there (which is doubtful), he knows he will never have friends again.
    He also knows that something is following them in the dark, rainy fields outside their car. Something monstrous.
    Once the monster arrives, things go very wrong. Myles and his family get lost, their car keeps breaking down, and a strange old man and his dog turn up, again and again. Then things get really weird. Myles is pretty sure it's all his fault: he's the only one who can see the monster. He's the only one who can hear the monster.
    And hardest of all? He's the only one who can make it go away.

    A long, creepy, overnight drive is made all the scarier by ghosts and possibly a monster. Myles, his older sister, Bea, and younger brother, Norman, endure a dark, stormy ride through the country with their mother heading for Nobleville, their father, and a new home. Bea reads, and Norman sleeps, but Myles worries, especially after he sees a pair of red eyes in the swirling mist outside the car, Victor-the-Volvo. No one believes Myles when he finally steels himself to talk about the monster, and no one else sees the golden, glowing dog that chases the monster away. Even hearing the local ghost story about old Pete Fournette and his lost dog, who regularly appear on rainy nights, doesn't ease their skepticism. It's only after Myles finds his own courage that the monster stops its mischief and withdraws as the sun rises and the family arrives in their new home. Dowding's second Weird Stories Gone Wrong is a relatively realistic, carefully written Goosebumps from north of the border. Though 4-year-old Norman's dialogue is unconvincing (fortunately he spends most of the book asleep), and there are a few paragraphs at the beginning and end from an intrusive and condescending narrator, this is a gentle but still shivery spook tale. Readers who have made a big move will identify with Myles and his fears made manifest. (Horror. 7-10)
