Is there life after death? Do ghosts really exist? Ghostvillage.com founder Jeff Belanger thinks so. He has traveled the world to speak with witnesses, psychics, and ghost hunters and to learn about their eerie experiences. 

In The World’s Most Haunted Places, Belanger offers an international tour of haunted historic locations. At the White House in Washington, D.C., staffers have spotted the specter of Dolley Madison protecting the Rose Garden and the ghost of Abraham Lincoln staring back at them from hallways. For decades, Resurrection Mary has been picked up by motorists on Archer Avenue in Chicago, only to disappear when they reach Resurrection Cemetery. In the Paris catacombs, where more than six million skeletons are held, visitors often hear strange voices. In Ireland’s Ballygally Castle Hotel, the ghosts are more mischievous, waking up guests in the middle of the night with their cackling laughter and knocks on the door. Other spirits are even less subtle, appearing in attic windows and movie theaters, to the fright and occasional amusement of their living witnesses.

These fascinating tales of true hauntings will draw in even the most skeptical reader, who will come to know places where the walls, the grounds, and the ghosts really do talk. 

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8-10–Written in a relatively journalistic style, Belanger’s texts show that he has obviously done his research. Chapters include photographs of each haunt, interviews with locals familiar with the cases, and background information on the events that triggered the ghost stories. Sources are cited. Readers looking to be spooked, however, will be disappointed. Both books are very text heavy and dotted only sparingly with small black-and-white photographs. Stories of spirit sightings are matter-of-fact and don’t inspire chills or thrills. Though both books would be great sources for school reports, kids reading for pleasure would probably prefer Hans Holzer’s Ghosts I’ve Met (2005) or The Ghost Hunter’s Strangest Cases (2006, both Barnes & Noble).–Kelly McGorray, Glenbard South High School, Glen Ellyn, IL
