    1. This is a ghostly story aimed at older children which I, as a grown woman, also really enjoyed Set in the Romney Marshes it is the story of Peter and Daisy, two young WWII evacuees are billeted at a remote farmhouse As soon as they arrive, strange things start to happen with eerie piped music being heard at night, and who are those children dancing outside There is just so much about this book that is creepy, especially the strange, nice one moment and sinister the next, housekeeper The location [...]

    2. Posted on blog first mrripleysenchantedbooks Please, he whispers as he thrust a copy of his book at me Read this, the strange man grunts at me He leaves me with no choice as he quickly vaporises into thin air I can still feel the prickly sensation from the strange encounter on that unusual day in November To be brutally honest, that surreal vision kept me up all night as I read The Piper by Danny Weston Could he be the vision and the voice that I heard Ah well, we will perhaps never know.This st [...]

    3. I enjoyed this book It has a good if maybe a little rushed plot I come from Rye so know the Romney Marsh It made me look into the history of the Royal Military Canal.

    4. This isn t the kind of story I usually read, but every time I picked it up to read some , I just couldn t put it down again And not only because it was a retold version of the Pied Piper story, though that s what grabbed me originally It s a story told in flashback, where the main character, Peter, is an old man speaking to his granddaughter about the horrible things that happened during the second world war during the evacuation of children away from London Young Peter went with his sister Dais [...]

    5. I m a little disappointed that I didn t like this as much as I had hoped But can you blame me for hoping this would be terrifying Cause that cover is stunningly scary But the actual story Not so much Maybe if I was a little younger I may have been freaked but I feel like the actual story could have been fleshed out excuse the pun with of a back story for the Piper We find out who he is but not anything else personal which I feel could have happened in a few creepy scenes with the Piper and Pe [...]

    6. The piper is a thrilling book, in which Daisy and Peter tow young children from London are evacuated At the marsh they discover haunting stories of French prisoners, and every night they hear strange music This book kept me hooked, giving me enough clues to work things out, but keeping enough information covered to make its reveal dramatic The story was incredibly realistic, a story in which there is not really evil and good, or right and wrong Both sides actions are for love, and that is what m [...]

    7. The Piper is a book for younger readers, but I think older readers will enjoy it just as much Peter and his younger sister Daisy are evacuated to an isolated farm on the dangerous Romney Marsh The story is tense right from the time they make their journey with Bessie and Adam to the farmhouse as night falls and the sense of unease grows steadily Daisy is a companion for bedbound Miss Sally and she soon starts acting strangely She sees girls dancing in the garden and nighttime and hearing pipe mu [...]

    8. Well written ghost story for older children that keeps you guessing until the end of the book Picked up this book in Edinburgh so I am not sure how available it is in the US It was named Best Children s Book in Scotland.

    9. The Piper is a gothic horror story in the tradition of The Turn of the Screw, where on the surface everything seems fine, but scratch and a dark, sinister underbelly is revealed After a creepy prologue, we meet Helen, who is visitng her Grandad Peter inb a nursing home for his birthday When Helen tells him in passing that she has signed up for a school trip to Romney Marsh, her grandfather forbids her to anywhere near the place He tells her it is dangerous, and starts rambling about Daisy and ho [...]

    10. I won this in a first reads giveaway, so thank you Andersen Press and Danny Weston for that.This book is an older children s ghost story and I am an adult who reads a ton of adult horror Parts of this book unnerved me than any adult horror books have done in years For me, the thoughts of a room full of dolls, creepy piper music, and young girls dancing in the garden in the middle of the night are not pleasant ones So I was sufficiently unsettled at certain points The story itself was interestin [...]

    11. This books is truly amazing It is so intense and leaves you with no choice but to keep on reading I mean, I read this over a period of a week and I found myself, several times, waking up in the middle of the night and grabbing the book and start reading Though there isn t much actual horror, the story is so thrilling and is one of those books with a weird psychological twist.SPOILER WARNING The book is set mostly in war time Britain, though in parts it is set in present day,and is all about the [...]

    12. I didn t think of picking this book up at first but it was recommended to me so with it being short i thought i would give it a try I am glad I did because for a short ghost story i found it atmospheric, creepy and well worth the time I loved how the story is being told by Helen s Grandfather who is Peter in the story It was interesting the story being set against the backdrop of the war with the two children evacuated to the countryside to a strange and lonely household where Peter uncovers dea [...]

    13. This book is simply incredible I cannot fathom how such a slow and seemingly boring tale turned into one of epic proportions The piper is about two young children who are evacuated to escape WW2 They are sent to a strange marsh with stranger people Its got horror, suspense and man epic twists, an incredible read.

    14. A good read for tweens or those who think they re teen like my 11 year old Just scary enough to keep the reader interested without sending them to bed with nightmares for weeks A re telling of the Pied Piper tale during WWII Most folk fairy tales are geared towards a female audience, it s nice to read one that will appeal to boys.

    15. Loved loved loved this brilliant book couldnt put it down wanted worth than 5.loved the characters its a ghostly story couldnt put this book down won this book on first reads really glad I did recommend who liked to read a chilling story fantastic writing.

    16. Danny Weston is an author I have only recently discovered after reading Mr Sparks a novel about a living ventriloquist s dummy The Piper was good quite atmospheric and creepy but could have been even so

    17. this is no doubt my favourite book, it has you on the edge of your seat wanting to read , I could read this over and over again and I would never want to put it down, definitely recommend it

    18. Glad I finished reading this one in daylight or else I wouldn t have been able to sleep Very scary story set in Romney Marshes, enjoyed the growing suspense and fantastic unnerving ending.

    19. The story and detail within is beautiful It is unique to other stories I have read and the part right at the end, with the little surprise, made me smile.
