Tell The Story To Its End


People are keeping secrets from Oli. His mum has brought him to stay with his aunt and uncle in the countryside, but nobody will tell him why his dad where his father is. Why isn't he with them? Has something happened? Oli has a hundred questions, and only an old, empty house in the middle of an ancient forest for answers. But then he finds a secret of his own: there is a creature that lives in the attic…

Eren is not human.
Eren is hungry for stories.
Eren has been waiting for him.

Sharing his stories with Eren, Oli starts to make sense of what’s happening downstairs with his family. But what if it’s a trap? Soon, Oli must make a choice: learn the truth—or abandon himself to Eren’s world, forever.



Tell The Story To Its End is a
Junior Library Guild selected title.
 "In this provocative modern fable, Simon P. Clark incisively probes the intrinsic codependence between the storyteller and his listener: Which one, the book slyly asks, needs the other more? Unflinchingly dark and unforgettably creepy, [Tell The Story To Its End] will have you in its grip."- Anne Ursu, award-winning author of The Real Boy and The Shadow Thieves.

"Savvy readers and would-be writers will love this exploration of story as an art form, a panacea, and an endless part of life." Kirkus Reviews

"Echoing the surreal quality and settings of David Almond’s books, this novel adeptly mixes fantasy with reality and leaves some pressing questions unanswered." Publishers Weekly
