Just call him prune face! Steve Boswell will never forget Carly Beth’s Halloween mask. It was so gross. So terrifying. But this year Steve wants to have the scariest costume on the block. So he gets a mask from the same store where Carly Beth got hers. It looks like a creepy old man. With stringy hair. A wrinkled face. And spiders crawling out of the ears! Steve’s definitely got the scariest mask around. Too bad he’s starting to feel so old. And so tired. And so evil.(GoodReads)
This was my first children book read after the Tales from Shakespeare (for children). This book was my introduction to the lovely fogy world of horror and I am thankful to enter through the black door.
It was a gift from my father to me when I was 9; the cover freaked me out so I kept it hidden for a year but after that I wanted a touch of horror so I looked for my old scarey book and started reading it. I could not put it down untill the end.
This part is so special to my heart; it was my door to horror novels…
