ABOUT THIS BOOK

Have you ever heard an urban legend?
 
In this trio of terrifying tales, three boys have a close brush with the unknown as they encounter ghostly horses who run the streets at night, phantom farm children whispering in their ears, and a deceased former classmate who may be less dead than everyone thought. . . .
 
Eerie, thought-provoking, and perfect for Halloween, these scary stories are sure to delight readers who grew up on Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark looking for a good spine-tingler!

QUOTES

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, June 1, 2013:"Well-crafted eerie tales of the bonds between the dead and the living. Wicked good."

AWARDS

SELECTION 2014 - Children's Book Committee at Bank Street College Children's Book of the Year
