6.00 x 8.63in; 48 pp

In their imaginary games, it’s her elder sister who always gets to be captain of the ship but this time, she slyly manages to get the better of her.

This is the sixth title in the very successful Creepies series: the stories are exciting but the language is simple, which makes them suitable for reluctant readers as well as for first readers.

The Guardian newspaper described the stories as “Pure Spielberg: children will love them.”

Hailed by Kirkus Review: "Kemp’s dark illustrations provide most of the ‘creepiness’ in these two gentle tales of dread."

The Midwest Book Review says there is "exactly the right hint of fearsome mystery clothing the familiar in this imaginative little spooky thriller. Kids will love it and reluctant readers will be enticed to read more."
