Billy is a street urchin, pickpocket and petty thief. Mister Creecher is a monstrous giant of a man who terrifies all he meets. Their relationship begins as pure convenience. But a bond swiftly develops between these two misfits as their bloody journey takes them ever northwards on the trail of their target . . . Victor Frankenstein. Friendship, trust and betrayal combine to form a dangerous liaison in this moving and frightening new book from Chris Priestley.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Mister Creecher: A brilliant counterpoint to Frankenstein, compellingly written. Chris Priestley goes from strength to strength * Chris Riddell *
A dark, moving, creepy, funny tale about the making of a famous monster . . . only not the one you think it'll be. Splendid gothic stuff * Kim Newman, author of Nightmare Movies *
Praise for the Tales of Terror books: A wonderfully nightmarish journey of the imagination - old-fashioned storytelling at its best * Daily Mail *
The gradual build-up of horror . . . is exquisitely done. My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book * Sunday Telegraph *

“Clever idea”

This was a pretty good book. It kept my attention all the way through and was a clever retelling of an old story. I wasn't SO keen on the ending (not bad, it just wasn't what i wanted!) but not bad at all.

“Tough book to get through”

A good promise. But a bit of a tough book to get through.
