School Library Journal
The selections in these titles are easily found elsewhere. The first book includes Charles Dickens's "The Trial for Murder" and Mary E. Wilkins's "The Lost Ghost." The second one has an extract from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher" and E. F. Benson's "The Room in the Tower." While the stories are not overly graphic or frightening, some contain difficult vocabulary. Each volume has full-color illustrations, and some pages have colored backgrounds, which make the books seem as if they were intended for a younger audience. Short biographies of the authors are included. Strictly additional.
