Horror Heights: The Slime: Book 1

Bec Hill

Welcome to Horror Heights: can the children who live here conceal the strange goings on behind closed doors?

Connie hasn’t found her talent yet, but at least she has her slime collection - if it’s gooey, she’s got it! She hopes that by adding a few extra ingredients to a simple recipe she will uncover a talent for slime-making, but alas, all she uncovers is a hot, stinky mess which ends up in the bin. It’s shaping up to be another uneventful weekend … until her failed slime experiment wakes her up the next morning. It’s alive! And can talk! And is named… Big.

Big adores Connie and wants to protect her from everything at all times, which is very sweet. At first. But when it gets bigger, grows teeth and threatens to eat her friends and father, can Connie uncover her TRUE talents in order to protect everything from THE SLIME?

Goosebumps for a new generation, by award-winning comedian and CITV presenter, Bec Hill, this is the first in a creeptastic new series for readers aged 8 and up.

Review

Connie is known to her classmates as the Queen of Slime because every week she shows off a new slime at school. When Connie’s dad suggests she try making her own slime, Connie starts experimenting. She adds some of her Dad’s stinky sourdough mother (very topical and relatable) to her slime mix, and overnight things start to happen …

At first Connie is quite fond of the sentient, foul-smelling and fast-learning slime that she has managed to create. Dubbed Big Yikes, the slime likes to eat ‘tasty hards’ (what it calls pizza crusts) and is actually kind of helpful. It’s not long though before Big Yikes becomes demanding, erratic and very scary, causing chaos at school and rifts among Connie’s friends.

With a big nod to legendary children’s horror series Goosebumps and cinema classics such as The Blob and Gremlins, Horror Heights: The Slime is the first hilarious book in a new series by comedian and telly presenter Bec Hill. It’s creepy and gross and very, very fun, which is exactly how horror for kids should be!

For readers ages 8+.
