The Guardian on Dread Wood

Dread Wood High is a school like no other! Angelo and his friends are used to battling horrifying creatures at school – giant spiders that fire poison darts, brain biting worms that burrow into your flesh and vampire birds that drink your blood! These terrifying beasts were brought to life by crazed caretakers-slash scientists, the Latchitts And they aren’t finished yet . . .

In this exclusive World Book Day story, Angelo and the
rest of Club Loser must venture deep into the tunnels underneath Dread Wood High to rescue their favourite teacher, Mr Canton. But more hideous creations live in the Latchitts’ old laboratories . . . and they’re hungry! Can Club Loser stop these creatures from escaping into the world and make it out in one piece? Read it and see, if you dare!

An epic, pulse-racing, sci-fi adventure, perfect for readers aged 8+.

Reviews for the Dread Wood series: “Deliciously scary and hilarious comedy-horror, perfectly pitched for eight-plus.” The Guardian “Brilliantly creepy fun for young horror fans, with an unexpectedly moving ending.” – iNews “Jennifer Killick’s talent for horror and humour is blended brilliantly here as the spiky dialogue, unstoppable pace and genuinely menacing atmosphere build to a tremendous climax”– Daily Mail “This is Killick’s best book yet; think ‘The Breakfast Club’ meets ‘Stranger Things’, making great use of her talent for comic dialogue and her astute eye for just the right kind of scary for this age group.” – Editor’s Choice, The Bookseller After her last two books (the fantastically creepy Crater Lake and Crater Lake: Evolution), Jennifer has, yet again, upped the level of stylishly slick, sinister storylines and honed her clever range of shock / comedy techniques – from the laugh-out-loud, nose-snortingly funny moments, to the cheekily edgy asides, to the poignant warm-hearted, gentle, fun scenes she does so well.- ReadingZone (Book of the Day, February 16th 2022) Not for the faint-hearted, this edge-of-seat horror is hard to put down, with many chapters ending on a cliff-hanger. But it’s the humanity and backstories that stay with you when the trauma ends. BookTrust (Book of the Day, April 13th 2022) Authors “Sharp, scary and a whole lot of fun!”Christopher Edge, author of Escape Room “This is BRILLIANT! Creepy, pacy, smart, witty and just pure Jennifer genius.”Vashti Hardy, author of Brightstorm “Spine-tingling, rib-tickling stuff.” – Chris Callaghan, author of The Great Chocoplot “Dread Wood is absolutely BRILLIANT! Majorly creepy and hugely funny! Skillfully written, with a gorgeous cast of characters, great heart, and a moving and satisfying ending. I LOVED it!” – Eloise Williams, author of The Tide Singer
