Young Midlothian readers will soon face a spine-chilling time at their local library.
The Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge, featuring Creepy House adventures, will take place from June 21 to August 23.
Children aged 4-11 have to read six books and collect six stickers.
Those who complete the set will receive a medal, a free swimming voucher and certificate, as well as being entered into a draw for a special prize.
A website (www.creepy-house.org.uk) will be available from June 21 with games, activities and author blogs.
