This special bind-up edition of Grinny and its powerful sequel You Remember Me is the first out-of-print book to be revived and republished as part of Hot Key Books' reissued classics collection 'Forgotten Favourites". A 'Forgotten factsheet" is to accompany each classic.
First published in 1973, Grinny is a classic sci-fi story filled with suspense, danger and adventure. Tim's diary charts the arrival of his mysterious Great Aunt Emma, an old lady who appears grinning on his doorstep and decides to stay. Nicknamed 'Grinny" for her constant eerie chatter and mindless smile, at first their Aunt seems to be strange but harmless. But when Tim and his sister Beth make a horrifying discovery about their visitor, they realise that the safety of the entire planet is in jeopardy, and the silent invasion has already started.
Award-winning author Malorie Blackman has written an introduction for Grinny. Perfect for fans of R. L. Stine's Fear Street series, Grinny's sinister malevolence will continue to terrify readers, both old and new!
