Jake and the Giant Hand

(The first book in the Weird Stories Gone Wrong series)
A novel by

The first in a series of scary tall tales from award-winning children's novelist Philippa Dowding.

Why is Grandpa acting so weird? And why are there so many giant flies?

Jake spends every summer on his grandpa's farm. But this year, things are a little weird. First, there are huge flies everywhere. Second, Grandpa is acting kind of funny. And third, Jake's friend Kate keeps trying to scare him with creepy stories. Last year's tale about the swamp creature was bad enough, but this year's story about a hand that someone found in a farmer's field is even worse. And it wasn't just any hand either. It was a giant's hand!

It might just be the creepiest story of all. It can't be real. Can it?
