Read full description of the books:
Ethan e Cathy vivono con il padre all’Old Inn, una vecchia locanda arroccata su un’alta scogliera a picco sul mare. Una sera una misteriosa malattia colpisce i due bambini, che cominciano a urlare per il dolore. Il padre allora esce di casa per andare a cercare un medico. Fuori imperversa una violenta bufera, il mare è in tempesta e la furia del vento scuote le finestre e fa scricchiolare le pareti della locanda. All’improvviso bussano alla porta. È il giovane marinaio Jonah Thackeray che chiede ospitalità. In cambio si offre di raccontare ai bambini storie paurose ed emozionanti, apprese nei suoi lunghi anni di navigazione. Ma c’è qualcosa di molto strano in questo visitatore, e il piccolo Ethan comincia a essere un po’ inquieto, sia perché le storie sono davvero terrificanti, sia perché malgrado siano passate diverse ore il padre non fa ancora ritorno…

Read information about the authorHis father was in the army and so he moved around a lot as a child and lived in Wales. He was an avid reader of American comics as a child, and when he was eight or nine, and living in Gibraltar, he won a prize in a newspaper story-writing competition. He decided then “that my ambition was to write and illustrate my own book”.
He spent his teens in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, before moving to Manchester, London and then Norfolk. He now lives in Cambridge with his wife and son where he writes, draws, paints, dreams and doodles (not necessarily in that order). Chris worked as an illustrator and cartoonist for twenty years, working mainly for magazines & newspapers (these include The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Economist and the Wall Street Journal) before becoming a writer. He currently has a weekly strip cartoon called 'Payne's Grey' in the New Statesman.
Chris has been a published author since 2000. He has written several books for children & young-adults, both fiction and non-fiction, and
has been nominated for many awards including the Edgar Awards, the UKLA Children's Book Award and the Carnegie Medal. In recent years he has predominantly been writing horror.
Ever since he was a teenager Chris has loved unsettling and creepy stories, with fond memories of buying comics like 'Strange Tales' and 'House of Mystery', watching classic BBC TV adaptations of M R James ghost stories every Christmas and reading assorted weirdness by everyone from Edgar Allen Poe to Ray Bradbury. He hopes Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror will haunt his readers in the way those writers have haunted him.
