Summary (From the publisher):

A collection of stories that have a big surprise at the end. The reader will meet sinister landladies, weird sweetshops, evil statuettes, deadly coffins, poisonous hats, awful slitherings, murderous monks, and real lions in the nursery. But watch out for the ending - it could be nasty.
