non stop reading, is what you will be doing when you read this book. every page was a new adventure. there are 140 thrilling pages.all the stories helped me understand the different cultures and beliefs. the way they retold the stories was devinly done. if you want a great book with many stories that will frighten you , you must read ask the bones.

The stories are good, but not scary, probably good for younger children. The author could've described things better, and made the stories more suspensful.
