Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Virginia Hamilton, Jan Mark, Judith Gorog and Margaret Mahy are among the storytellers whose works appear in this volume. A long-dead father returns in the form of a ghost-boy to give his son a present from the past in ``In a Dark, Dark Box,'' by Jane Hollowood and Gorog's ``A Story about Death'' shows a feisty mother outwitting the specter that comes to claim one of her three children; these are among the best in the batch. But the selections are uneven; even with Spenceley's pictures, it's easy to skim over many of the stories. This volume may best suit ghost story addicts, who will find some unfamiliar territory herein. All ages. (September)
School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up In this collection of 15 spooky short stories and poems, readers will meet a ghostly train conductor, Death coming to claim a child, three Indian children seeking shelter from a storm, and a peculiar thing in search of his tail. The selections, by such well-known writers as Sorche Nic Leodhas, Judith Gorog, and Virginia Hamilton, have been previously published. The stories are well-written and sometimes frighten ing, with several suitable for reading or telling aloud. This collection's glaring fault lies in the busy and often poorly designed realistic watercolors. The illus trations actually distract from the highly readable stories. Librarians would be better advised to stick to the original collections, including Gaelic Ghosts (Holt, 1963; o.p.) by Sorche Nic Leod has, A Taste for Quiet (Philomel, 1982) by Judith Gorog, Spooky (Prentice-Hall, 1985) edited by Pamela Lonsdale, and The People Could Fly (Knopf, 1985) by Virginia Hamilton.
