Summary

Reimagines the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde from the point of view of Henry Jekyll as a teenage boy.

What transforms an ordinary Edinburgh boy into the most infamous split personality of all time?

Scotland, 1850. Night after night, the closes and alleys of Edinburgh's Old Town are alive with horror. Who or what is the beast haunting the dark city?

A few streets away, in his respectable New Town home, young Harry Jekyll wakes from yet another nightmare. His hands are covered in blood. What evil lurks within young Jekyll?

This vividly imagined diary of the young Henry Jekyll examines the contradictions within us all and teases out one possible backstory for the character in Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

A haunting and atmospheric imagining of a classic tale.

NOTE : This could also be classified as junior fiction as it's very accessible but incidences of violence/horror themes may be more suited to a teenage readership
