Spook Squad: The Beast of Hangman's Hill
by Roger Hurn
The spook squad are Emma, Roxy, Nita and Leena; a team of four feisty girls who fight ghosts, vampires and all sorts of scary monsters. They'll do whatever it takes to keep humans safe from the things that go bump in the night!
In this, the first in the series, the squad come up against a snard, an evil creature with extra sharp fangs. The official advice is to run away as fast as you can, so the squad need to come up with a better plan…
At just 48 pages, this is a quick and fun read with lots of fresh and funky illustrations.
There is a house on Hangman’s Hill. It’s called The Old Tower. It is surrounded by dark woods.
A creature lurks by the trees. It is a creature from your worst nightmare’s nightmare. It lifts its snotty snout and sniffs the air. It growls. It knows its prey is close.
And it is hungry ... very hungry. Drool runs down its jaws. Somehow you just know it’s going to be a messy eater.
A light goes on in a window of The Old Tower. The creature sees a gang of girls come into the room. The creature’s lips curl back into a smile that could turn a supermarket milk display sour.
It slips silently through the darkness towards the Tower, like the bogey man – only with extra bogeys!
