The Deadtime Stories by “Twisted Sisters” Annette and Gina Cascone—they’ll scare you silly and give you giggles at the same time.

C. T. and his cousin Lea are staying at their grandparents’ old farmhouse. It’s Grandpa’s seventieth birthday, and everyone’s celebrating with a big family reunion. All the weird relatives are here, and all they seem to want to talk about are “the good old days.”

C. T. and Lea think “the good old days” are pretty boring—until they find some home movies hidden away in the attic, movies from when their grandfather was just a boy. The home movies give them a piece of family history that the relatives never talked about. It seems that horses, cows, pigs, and chickens aren’t the only creatures Grandpa’s been taking care of on the farm.

C. T. and Lea discover there’s a monster among them—and this creature is dying to eat a lot more than the birthday cake!

Worse than that, he was being hunted.
He thought he was well hidden. But then, so were his hunters.
They might be anywhere, Catan Thomas thought. They might be just a few feet away right now!
There was no way for him to know. He couldn’t see more than a foot in any direction, because he was deep inside a cornfield, surrounded by stalks that towered high above his head.
It had seemed like the perfect place to hide. But now he wasn’t so sure. Now he felt swallowed up by the field.
The cornstalks stood

REVIEWS

Praise for Deadtime Stories: Grandpa's Monster Movies

“Scary enough to be absorbing, but not so frightening as to produce nightmares, Witching Game also blends humor and suspense to create a seemingly real story with spooky effects. These titles are shivery but fun, quick reads, and the short chapters with cliff-hangers will engage even the most reluctant readers.”—School Library Journal on The Witching Game

“The first in the new DEADTIME STORIES series for kids, which will pair books and movies (the latter in a series of live-action TV films) for kids who enjoy short chapters, cliffhangers, and no overt violence. Parents will appreciate an approach which combines thrills and chills without gore.”
The Midwest Book Review on Grave Secrets
