Horowitz Horror: Burnt

Uncle Nigel is dying to get a suntan – and when his skin starts to frazzle and his brain begins to fry, he might just do it sooner than he thought. When Bart buys a magical monkey’s ear in a Marrakesh market, he learns that making wishes is a dangerous game. And who is the writer of the shortest horror story ever told? Three terrifying tales from a master of fear.
