ABOUT THIS BOOK

Thirty spine-chilling stories from around the world provide plenty of shivers in this spooky collection.  Curl up with old friends like Washington Irving's "Guests from Gibbet Island" or Charles Dickens' "Chips."  Or make the aquaintance of "The Skull That Spoke" and "The Monster of Baylock"--but beware of spectral visitors like "The Blood-Drawing Ghost." This exciting mixture of classic and contemporary tales from Mexico, China, Poland, Nigeria, and other lands near and far is perfect for hair-raising reading!

Twenty deliciously eerie illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers highlight this companion to Robert D. San Souci's earlier collections of scary stories, Short & Shivery and More Short & Shivery, which School Library Journal called "an absolute delight."


From the Hardcover edition.
