As I've said before in this blog, I didn't read much as a child. But I do remember getting this book. I was on holiday. This is a 1973 edition so I would have been about 10. I remember it sitting in a holiday gift shop in one of those book stands that twirls round. I used to be fascinated by book covers even if books held little attraction. The Pan Book of Horror Stories always drew my eye. I couldn't look away from them. But wanted to!
