Read full description of the books Le Dernier Esprit:L'hiver resserre son étreinte glaciale sur Londres. Sam est gelé et il est affamé. Lorsqu'il demande de l'argent à un homme riche, Ebenezer Scrooge, il reçoit un refus brutal. Sam est rempli d'une rage violente et il jure de tuer cet homme égoïste. Plus tard, blotti dans un cimetière pour se réchauffer, Sam voit s'approcher la silhouette fantomatique d'un homme. Le fantôme prévient Sam de l'avenir terrible qui l'attend s'il choisit la voie de l'assassinat.
Sam entreprend un voyage mené par des esprits terrifiants à travers le passé, le présent et le futur. Après quoi il doit choisir de prendre ou non la vie de Scrooge - et décider ainsi de son propre destin.
Read information about the authorHis father was in the army and so he moved around a lot as a child and lived in Wales. He was an avid reader of American comics as a child, and when he was eight or nine, and living in Gibraltar, he won a prize in a newspaper story-writing competition. He decided then “that my ambition was to write and illustrate my own book”.
He spent his teens in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, before moving to Manchester, London and then Norfolk. He now lives in Cambridge with his wife and son where he writes, draws, paints, dreams and doodles (not necessarily in that order). Chris worked as an illustrator and cartoonist for twenty years, working mainly for magazines & newspapers (these include The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Economist and the Wall Street Journal) before becoming a writer. He currently has a weekly strip cartoon called 'Payne's Grey' in the New Statesman.
Chris has been a published author since 2000. He has written several books for children & young-adults, both fiction and non-fiction, and
has been nominated for many awards including the Edgar Awards, the UKLA Children's Book Award and the Carnegie Medal. In recent years he has predominantly been writing horror.
Ever since he was a teenager Chris has loved unsettling and creepy stories, with fond memories of buying comics like 'Strange Tales' and 'House of Mystery', watching classic BBC TV adaptations of M R James ghost stories every Christmas and reading assorted weirdness by everyone from Edgar Allen Poe to Ray Bradbury. He hopes Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror will haunt his readers in the way those writers have haunted him.
