Horowitz Horror: Scared

Gary hates the countryside. Why did his mum have to bring him here? It’s boring and hot, and field after field, it all looks the same… Kevin loves computer games, but this latest game (Smash Crash Slash 500 Plus) breaks all the rules. Now he’s deep in the game – but how will he get out? After a lifetime of bullying, stealing and playing truant, Howard has finally made it to Heaven – so why is he so unhappy? Three terrifying tales from a master of fear.
