Out to Get You: 13 Tales of Weirdness and Woe
Illustrator: Sarah J. Coleman
The everyday world is full of sinister secrets, and these page-turning stories show that there’s darkness even where you least expect it. Readers will sleep with one eye open…
Get ready for a collection of thirteen short stories that will chill your bones, tingle your spine, and scare your pants off. Debut author Josh Allen masterfully concocts horror in the most innocent places, like R.L. Stine meets a modern Edgar Allan Poe. A stray kitten turns into a threatening follower. The street sign down the block starts taunting you. Even your own shadow is out to get you! Spooky things love hiding in plain sight. Thirteen eerie full-page illustrations by award-winning artist Sarah J. Coleman accompany the tales in this frightful mashup that reads like a contemporary Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
Black-and-white illustrations created with pencil, pen, and ink.
