Publisher's Summary

A boy is imprisoned by a witch and must tell her a new scary story each night to stay alive. This thrilling contemporary fantasy from J. A. White, the acclaimed author of the Thickety series, brings to life the magic and craft of storytelling.

Alex’s original hair-raising tales are the only thing keeping the witch Natacha happy, but soon he’ll run out of pages to read from and be trapped forever. He’s loved scary stories his whole life, and he knows most don’t have a happily ever after. Now that Alex is trapped in a true terrifying tale, he’s desperate for a different ending - and a way out of this twisted place.

This modern spin on the Scheherazade story is perfect for fans of Coraline and A Tale Dark and Grimm. With interwoven tips on writing with suspense, adding in plot twists, hooks, interior logic, and dealing with writer’s block, this is the ideal audiobook for budding writers and all fans of delightfully just-dark-enough tales.

This Book Brought Back My Childhood!

I grew up on R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps," and the Nickelodeon show, "Are You Afraid of the Dark." This book is like the best episode of either. Intensely original, with great pacing and lovable characters, this is a world I look forward to revisiting again!

Deliciously dark

The more I hear from this author, the more impressed O become. The stories are twisted and dark, yet beautiful. He's a master storyteller that needs more recognition.

Son gives it a 5/5/5!

We didn’t like the yelling parts in the book- the witch yells several times, but overall my son says the story and performance were really good!
Appropriate for an active 11 year old boy!
