In this book, six spine-tingling experiences await you:

In Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, you´ll visit a sun-baked garden in India, where silent death lurks in the tall grass.

In The Monkey´s Paw, you´ll be given a gift of three wishes you´ll wish you hadn´t received.

In Leiningen Versus the Ants, on a lush plantation in Brazil, you´ll battle an army of tiny soldiers who turn a man into a skeleton in the blink of an eye.

In The Lady, or the Tiger?, your fate will hang in the hands of a friend who just might wish you dead.

In To Build a Fire, deep in the frozen Yukon north, you´ll confront a danger that's beyond human understanding.

In The Most Dangerous Game, on a tropical island, you´ll meet a charming fellow who loves to hunt–and who has you in mind as his target.

Note: The short stories in this Townsend Library Classic have been carefully edited to be more accessible to today's students.
