A creepy, wry ghost story.
Willie McPhee has fallen on hard times. Finest bagpiper in all Scotland or not, if folks don't have a farthing to spare for amusement, a man could freeze.
Now, wandering nearshoeless in the dark heart of the cold woods, Willie McPhee has fallen on something else a tree trunk, he thinks. But a closer look reveals it's a man, a DEAD man, lying in the snow. AAAaaaaaah!
A poor man is a practical man, though, and that body is wearing a finelooking pair of boots. Soon Willie's feet are warm... but who's that tapping on the door?

The reason i rate this book 3 stars is because well it, is a good book with pretty good illustrations. It is just a bit scary i think for the younger kids. It would be a good story to sit around a camp fire and and tell to older kids, but i think that most will agree its a bit graphic for little ones. This book is easy to understand and it is also a nice take on the original tale.
