YOUR VERY OWN SPOOKY STORY
LIKE A COMPUTER GAME –
YOU DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS
OK, here is the situation: You have a babysitter. A babysitter! You are way to old for a babysitter! And to make matters worse she’s really grouchy, mean and impatient. But then you find this website where you can actually order a monster online, right to your doorstep. Which would be the perfect way to get revenge on a mean babysitter, right? The prospect is way too tempting to pass up. But will you end up regretting your decision? Can you keep control of all the monsters?
Your Very Own Scary Story is a stand-alone continuation of the best-selling books Your Very Own Fable and Your Very Own Nordic Mythology, but at least three times scarier! Because in this book, terrifying monsters are a dime a dozen and it’s up to YOU to decide what’s the best way to stay alive. Good luck!

"The “secret ingredient” is that Ævar Þór is extremely skilled at placing the reader in the center of the reading experience and giving him or her control of the process. His prankish, schoolyard sense of humor is always on hand, making sure that no one gets too frightened, despite all the horrors on offer."
