Oi this is lovely *legasp*
I love the lines- there's something about the skeleton which reminds me of an illustration of Witches- by Quentin Blake. It's so lovely that you combine an element of childish innocence and horror. I like how the lines feel a bit loose and carefree here. I would buy your story book in a heartbeat.
here is a creepy story:
There were two little boys who decided to invade a haunted house. It was rumored that there was a woman who was murdered in the house and that her ghost could be identified by a thumping sound- like someone jumping up and down. They said that as long as you didn't meet her eyes- you would be fine.
So the two boys- liking a bit of an adventure, decided to play hide and seek in this very house. After running around for a while, both of them heard the dreaded thumping sound. Panicking, they ran under a sofa and hid there, remembering that as long as they didn't meet her eyes- they should be okay.
Under the sofa- they could hear the thumping sounds gradually getting louder and louder.
The next morning, both little boys were found dead. Their hair turned white- they were shocked to death.
See, the two little boys forgot a very important detail. The woman who was murdered died when a crazy man hacked off her head.
So guess what they saw from under the sofa ?
