I've seen a selection of children's horror books and they look quite impressive (judging by the cover!) and I thought they'd make nice stocking fillers but does anyone know what they're like? are they actually scarey? spooky?

Titles? Age of children?

Malory Blackman has a new horror one out but I was very disappointed with it tbh. Neil Gaiman is worth looking out for. Darren Shan is the big name of kids' horror at the mo: they are gory and not desperately well-written but very appealing to boys of around 10-14 depending on their reading level.

Darren Shan and Anthony Horrowitz

Depends for what age but ds read the R. L. Stine Goosebumps books when he was 7 and loved them but the covers are scarier than the actual stories.
