HAIRY HORROR, by Sandra Glover, ISBN 978-1-783440337, £4.99
Hairy Horror, penned by South Lakeland author Sandra Glover, tells the story of little Anna who has moved into a new home which she generally loves.
The only problem she encounters is the ‘scary basement’ where her genius step-brother Hal lives.
Hal conducts weird experiments with a variety of potions.
However, things get even more terrifying for Anna when she discovers Hal has been working on one particularly adventurous top secret project — a monster tarantula spider which he calls Tula.
The question is — can Anna co-exist with such a terrifying arachnid as a house guest?
Sandra Glover is an award-winning author of books for both teenagers and younger readers and this one is aimed at those aged seven-plus.
Another bonus for readers is the fact that Hairy Horror is quirkily illustrated throughout by Kate Grove.
