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” and Charles Dickens’s “Chips.” Or make the acquaintance 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!
“[A] splendid choice for oral telling around a campfire, on a trip, in school, or at a sleepover.”–Booklist
“Young readers will gobble up these thirty thrilling snacks and beg for more.”
