Thirty hair-raising tales, selected from international ghostlore, have been skillfully retold especially for young people. Eerie black-and-white illustrations, ghastly details, and strong, shuddery endings make these the kind of stories young readers crave. Famous stories like “The Robber Bridegroom” by the Brothers Grimm, “Tailypo,” and “The Golem” are included, as well as retellings of stories by some of the world’s greatest authors, including Nathaniel Hawthorne and Washington Irving.
