All illustations by Rod Ruth. The Yamadan, and the boy in its grip, who is slowly tranforming into one himself. The Basilisk, as described here, is a large beast that is part chicken, part snake, with an evil-eye that kills any living thing that looks upon it, including itself. Lightner Tigger is the name of the sentient cat that serves as scout and guard, of sorts, for a team of astronauts exploring an alien world somewhere in the future. The story is told first-person, from his perspective.

Shelves: youth This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book scared the absolute crap out of me when I was a kid. The story "The Patchwork Monkey" was totally scarring, but I remember being pretty freaked out about the Yamadan, too. I think I only rented it from the library once, and to this day I still remember those two stories.
Patches was terrifying because it featured a stuffed patchwork monkey toy that had the most baleful face of any toy ever and sort of weirdly merged into the kids it killed. I will go to my grave being scared of that image.
There were stories in here that really scared the bejeesus out of me. Especially "the Patchwork Monkey" that story fed my nightmares for years.
If you get the chance give it a read of course the years may have taken off some of the bite. Apr 07, Lori rated it liked it I randomly checked this out as a kid and it was the scariest book I have ever read not in a good fun way either I still get chills when I think of some of the stories.
