While her parents are on holiday, Hazel must spend three weeks with her cruel Aunt Eugenia. A nightmare to live with, Eugenia is bitter, angry and extraordinarily rude. Then one night, Hazel discovers that there are real nightmares living in the woods.
Gorillas crossed with leopards, pythons crossed with porcupines and a dog with a wooden head: they sneak into Eugenia's room at night and give her terrible dreams.
Where do they come from? What are they up to? And why won't they let Aunt Eugenia sleep?
A fast-paced tale of friendship and revenge, from acclaimed author Leander Deeny.
