Launching 20 November!
Our young Early Harvest editors have compiled 14 bone-chilling stories from the depths of a haunted house they stumbled upon. Alas, they went missing shortly after!
If you want to be thrilled, excited, tantalised, horrified, frightened and shocked all at once, you’ve come to the right book! The Sound of the Dark features puppets, creepy girls, headless teddy bears and rashes to scare the pants off you! (Disclaimer: We are not responsible for run-away pants)
Our 15 editors received 135 submissions from young Australian writers, including one by beloved children's author Oliver Phommavanh. They have collected the very best stories and illustrations to deliver a creepy horror themed book like you’ve never experienced before.
