Thirteen Chairs
Dave Shelton


Jack stands in the dark on the landing of the sinister old house.

He peers through a crack in the door . . . A high-ceilinged room lit only by candles. Thirteen chairs, one empty.

Twelve mysterious storytellers, waiting to begin.

Will he dare to listen to their stories? Will he dare to tell his own?

Jack is a curious boy. Are you curious too?
