Book Review: 13 British Horror Stories


When I first saw the title of this book I was a little bit nervous.  I don’t do well with horror, scary, etc… But I figured I would give it a read anyway and if it got to be too much for me, well I didn’t have to finish all 13 stories. However, I did just fine reading the stories and they were not as horrible as I was anticipating (which is certainly a good thing!)

Each story is set in Britain and all have a different kind of creepy twist to them that keeps you guessing.  They are also short stories so you can easily read one here and there or perhaps during the commercials while watching TV 😉

A great book to get you in the mood for Halloween!

Book Review: Rainbow Panda and the Firecracker Fiasco

Rainbow Panda really, really wants to light firecrackers for the Chinese New Year, even though everyone is telling him that it is a bad idea.  He tries to enlist the help of some hamsters, after Black Panda tells him that he shouldn’t play with matches or light the fire crackers.  The hamsters tell him the same thing, but he knows if he throws the firecrackers at the dragon, the dragon will bring everyone good luck for the year.  Except even the Dragon tells him not to do it, because his mom might get mad.

Rainbow Panda thinks that he is an expert and tries to light the matches anyway.  He isn’t very good at it but finally gets one to light.  They are having fun with the firecracker until smoke starts to rise. The other animals come to try and help to put the fire out.  Rainbow Panda realizes that he shouldn’t have tried to be a hero and apologizes.  Black Panda is happy that no one was hurt, but reminds Rainbow Panda of the danger he put himself in.

Rainbow Panda and friends make food for everyone for the New Year and to apologize.

This is a cute book about not playing with fire. It teaches a great lesson.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
