Batrisha and the Creepy Caretaker
15 Jan. 2022
"I loved the drawing style and rhyme (and so did my Mum)": Hilda, age 9.
"I love it!!! It's so cool at the start - all the describing words. It kept me very interested. I love what happened after Old Joe and Batrisha told their stories." Zoe, age 13.
"Gloomwood Hollow Cemetery. A dark, forgotten place, visited once a year by its creepy caretaker, Old Joe. Now for the very first time, someone else is there, sitting in the shadows, waiting. A pale, dark-haired little girl and her two-tailed cat, hungering for the perfect scary story."
A short horror story for younger readers. The prose of the story has been written in easy-to-read poetry. An illustration on each page highlights the gist of the text.
The story progresses at reasonable pace for the younger readers, and the illustrations are sharp and clear. A limited colour palette simplifies the reading experience, and eventually the artwork adds to the growing horror to the story.
Although aimed for all ages, this fun reading experience will be best appreciated for the mid-primary school audience and will appeal to their growing sense of the world, and all creatures on the boundaries of this world! It's a story that will stay with the reader for a good while after reading it.
