Tiny Tales of Terror: Volume 1: Spots and Other Stories and Tiny Tales of Terror

The kids are alright…aren’t they?

Something weird is happening in the Happy Woodland Nursery – the delightful middle class preschool setting for the delightful middle-class children in the delightful middle-class town of Kingsworth. Spots have appeared on all of the young folk in the Badger Sett room and the staff can’t work out what’s caused them.

For the most part, the little boys and girls seem fine. But then, naptime rolls around and things change.

Delve into this twisted tale from author Dave Musson, then stick around ten more afterwards – there’s creepy dolls, unwelcome visitors, evil spirits and a few bad dreams too.

Tiny Tales of Terror, Volume 2: Anchor & Other Stories

No-one seemed to be responding when he pushed the call button – probably no-one could hear the button over the white noise that screeched every time he tried. And just what was going on with the colours in the room beyond the curtain pulled around his bed? They weren’t normal.

Good job he had his anchor to tie him to the real world…whatever that is.
