Young people have a tremendous appetite for the gruesome, scary and downright freaky. However, the material has to be presented in a humorous manner that while still absolutely fascinating, won’t scare the kids (or their parents) away. Each chapter is between 2000 and 3000 thousand words long and includes a cover piece with illustration and title followed by the text and a selection of at least five brilliant images produced by Kate intermixed with light hearted captions.
All of the illustrations and pictures will be in black and white to facilitate printing. Despite the rather gruesome material it is presented with a positive moral message and material in poor taste is avoided.
