ReadItDaddy's Chapter Book of the Week - Week Ending 22nd March 2019: "Christmas Dinner of Souls" by Ross Montgomery (Faber and Faber)

For this week's Chapter Book of the Week, I thought I'd let Charlotte type up her thoughts, as she's been thoroughly absorbed in this one since picking it up during Ross's recent visit to her school for World Book Day.

So without further ado, here's Charlotte's thoughts on the sublime "Christmas Dinner of Souls" by Ross Montgomery (with cover art by David Litchfield).

This book is about a boy called Lewis. 

Lewis is told by his headmaster to come back to his college at Midnight on Christmas day. 

As soon as the weird guests start turning up he knows that he is in for a looooong night. 

It is a spine-chilling story full of characters telling their own spooky stories. 

There is only one way to describe it: This book is a horror story full of horror stories!

I think it is the perfect book to read if you want to get into horror stories but don’t know where to start. 

The Christmas dinner of souls is a really interesting read because it takes lots of unexpected twists and turns.

Many thanks to Ross for coming into my school! His workshop was fabulous. After the workshop all of the kids in my class wanted to write scary stories. 

Thanks again and a well done for inspiring me and my friends!

This book should definitely be book of the week because it is so unique and overall one of my favourite reads.

Sum this book up in a sentence: A Horror story full of horror stories!
