You've seen them on the TV, now read the original stories!

This is the third in the Grizzly Tales series of books.A raucous book filled with demented and horrible children who get their just desserts.

Luscious writing spiced up with injections of carbolic humour.

You'll meet a boy reduced to ashes while playing a stolen trumpet in an electric storm, a junior embezzler who inflates a flattened road-kill with a bicycle pump and a flock of pink butterflies made of peeled-off eyelids.

Join in and relish the deserving victims' ghastly fates!

Prepare to laugh, gasp and squirm as you read these cautionary tales.

Includes Mr Peeler's Butterflies, Dr Moribundus, Death By Chocolate, Bessy O'Messy, Well'ard Willard and more Grizzly Tales For Gruesome Kids is a series of modern morality tales for children.

In each story a horrid, sadistic, brute of a child meets his or her deservedly grotesque end."Be warned - Jamie Rix's splendidly nasty short stories can be genuinely scary, but as the protaganists are obnoxious brats with names like Peregrine and Tristram, you may find yourself cheering as they meet their sticky ends." Independent on Sunday "These are moral tales told in a honey-lush prose spiced with salutory bolts of carbolic and with an amoral relish for the deserving victims' ghastly Nemeses." Books For Keeps "Mix Dahl with Belloc and you can anticipate with glee these tales of Jamie Rix.

Even William Brown's antics pale beside noisy chocoholic Serena Slurp..." Daily Telegraph "Fifteen well-crafted stories each show how the disorderly and the fantastic lurk just beneath the ordinary and the workaday.

A smashing summer evening's dipping-into trove this one." The Guardian "An excellent book of stories for all but the most timid...the accumulation of grimness is also part of the effect, so older children can enjoy this collection by themselves and adults can have a marvellous time reading them to younger ones."
