Mal Peet, illus by Emma Shoard

Barrington Stoke

A powerful and unsettling novella from the multi-award-winning Mal Peet, with stunning full-colour illustrations from Kate Greenaway longlisted Emma Shoard.

Sandie has been battling it since her childhood; the hulking, snarling black dog of her nightmares. Although her precious pet dog Rabbie may have fought back against this monster for years, when he is no longer there to protect her the black dog will return and Sandie’s nightmare will come back to haunt her...

A deeply unnerving examination of fear that will leave you guessing long after its final page.
