Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“With fourteen stories in the book, I sure you will find one that you will enjoy.” —Children's Literature
Children's Literature
The cover illustration by Peter Bailey is sure to grab the attention of students with its striking contrast of colors and the playful skeleton chasing bats across the night sky. Jane Olliver has selected a variety of stories from old Indian tales, retellings from the Brothers Grimm, to an excerpt from Margaret Mahy's The Haunting. Although the stories are spine tingling and mysterious I doubt any children will lose sleep over these tales. Sprinkled throughout the book are black and white illustrations that enhance the stories. One story set in St. Andrews in Scotland humorously depicts a family that was disgraced because their house had no bogle (ghost.) The son goes to the graveyard and invites home a ghost who proves to be a horrible bagpipe player. With fourteen stories in the book, I sure you will find one that you will enjoy. 2003 (orig. 1992 Kingfisher Publications),
