Petrify, Paperback Book


Everyone knows that you don't go into Ma Jessop's woods.

Everyone but new boy Josh. He's not scared by spooky stories about a wild old witch who drinks human blood.

To prove his point to Ella and her friends, Josh goes into the quarry at the heart of the woods and steals a souvenir.

But suddenly, terrible things start to happen. Can Ella and Josh find a way to appease Ma Jessop before anyone gets really hurt? Or is the horror only just beginning... Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Up encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, or those with English as an additional language, aged 11+, at a manageable length (80 pages) and reading level (9+).

Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
