Robert Harper is going back to school, and it is the first railway journey he has ever made alone. And it is not a very usual sort of railway journey.
The train stops at the tunnel's mouth and in order to help whileaway the time, a strange woman dressed in white tells Robert stories. But these are not the kind of stories normally told to a child. Soon Robert is both entranced and terrified by the strange woman and her macabre stories....
Eleven more spine-chilling tales for older children from best-selling author Chris Priestley.
