Overview

Kids love scary stories, and these 84 tales, terrifying and true, will send shivers down their spines. Violent ghosts, lost souls, and strange specters all wander spookily; creepy illustrations heighten the horror. Read a bone-chilling account of a night in a haunted house, of a ghost who scared a dog to death, and of a terrifying face in the mirror that ended up saving a man's life. Hear the creepiest confession ever, told to a priest by a dead man. Meet some very famous ghosts--including the spirit of author Margaret Mitchell, who, it seems, wasn't so "gone with the wind." Many first-hand accounts tell of ghost ships and phantom stagecoaches; of bizarre occurrences (like a flying monk); and of a painting of a lighted castle that mysteriously "goes dark" once every century. Don't let the icy grip of fear grow too tight...if you can help it!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This collection of short, intriguing tales would be perfect for recounting around the campfire. The first story is about a delightful young lady who danced with young men at a school dance. The next day, one of the young men realized that he had forgotten to retrieve the jacket he had loaned her on the way home. When he was told that the girl was buried in the cemetery, he found his jacket on the grave. The book includes scary tales, such as the one about the headless ghost of Blackbeard, the pirate. There are even tales of the ghosts of animals. Some of the ghosts are helpful to the living. One example is a father's ghost helping to save his drowning son. Some are frightening; for instance, a mysterious hand that tried to strangle a sleeping child. Various possible explanations are given for the appearances of particular ghosts. But there are many questions left to the reader's imagination. 2002, Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 8 up.

    Mystery

    This book is great and it gave me nightmares!! There are so many spooky stories in there that it will leave you looking over your back for ages. Oh, and you just might want to leave that closet light on at night.
