    hello!

    For Shane's information(and anyone else who mught want to read this book), the Legend of Sleepy Hollow wasn't all blood and gore, it was also a story. I gave it four stars because, while I haven't read this book's version, I know the story well and , honestly, how much could they change a classic?

    Not Enough of Sleepy Hollow

    This book used The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in the title but The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was only a minor storie in the book. The whole story follows a school master named Ichabod through the entire story untill a exiting chase of the Headless Horseman. At the end of the chase Ichabod is killed by a pupkin flaming with brimstone. If you want action and a better version of Sleepy Hollow see the movie!

    This a great book both for personal reading enjoyment and for educational purposes. I tutor students at the elementary through college levels and this is a great tool. The stories are short, well written, enjoyable and contain some advanced vocabulary. It is well suited to the task of teaching good writing principles, literature and vocabulary. A bonus is that it quickly becomes a favorite for the student and this makes it very exciting to discuss. I would highly recommend it to all.
