We've just released a very unscary story full of MONSTROUS ... apple trees? and FRIGHTENING ... rainbows!? The Unscary Book is a book from usually giggling (and this time also giggling and not at all frightened) storyteller Jimmy Rees and creator Nick Bland for the children out there who like the not-so-scary things! But we know that there are some kids out there who really do like scary stories. We've put together some of our spookiest stories for halloween, sure to scare even the bravest of kids.*
My dead bunny's name is Brad,
his odour is extremely bad.
He visits me when I'm in bed,

I'm scared of them.
But not jelly snakes.
They're scared of me.
Especially the yummy ones that taste like pineapple.
