'Tim barely knows his father, but he's spending the day at his dad's workplace. The set of the TV show "Dr. Riddle" seems normal at first, but it becomes clear that something strange is going on. The star of the show is just a puppet, so why does the puppet master treat it like a real boy?' (Source: Google Books).

The Grandstand, Gary Crew , Unknown (translator) single work children's fiction children's horror
'A retired policeman is telling his grandchildren the "real life" horror story of "Dicky" Dingle. "Dicky" was the groundsman at a small bush school, none too bright and lamed by polio - a sitting duck for some of the nastier children, who make his life a misery. Unbeknown to the children, "Dicky" plans a horrible revenge on his tormentors.'
