Halloween Bingo 2017 - Chilling Children

The Midwich Cuckoos - John Wyndham

Cuckoos lay eggs in other birds' nests. The clutch that was fathered on the quiet little village of Midwich, one night in September, proved to possess a monstrous will of its own. It promised to make the human race look as dated as the dinosaur.

 

Yeah, I know 'Chilling Children' hasn't been called yet, but after reading various comments about The Day of the Triffids yesterday, I decided I couldn't wait any longer to re-read one of my favourite books.
