Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- In sharp contrast to Irving's eloquent and flowing language, this easy-to-read version of the classic story recounts the major premise in simplified prose. All of the key players are here and retain their distinctive personalities, while some events and circumstances have been left out. Standiford introduces Ichabod's love and admiration for Katrina almost immediately, omitting their initial teacher-student relationship. At the same time, the schoolmaster's fascination with ghosts and the supernatural is adequately developed. Nice, shadowy, colored-pencil drawings that are dark as well as humorous and expressive, complement the text. --Rita Soltan, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI
