The Haunted Violin is an almost true story Dad told me as a child. The house was an abandoned house located outside the small town Dad grew up in. The house stayed empty for many years till two brave boys discovered the source of the spooky sounds that came eerily on a regular basis. Late one afternoon Roy and Johnny walked slowly up Jensen Road; a summer storm threatened the hot air. The silence is suddenly pierced by the spine tingling sounds of a violin, not a song, but sounds like bony fingers running across the strings. The boys freeze, Johnny looks at Roy and whispers, “Hey Roy, I bet you’re too chicken to go inside and get that creepy violin!” Roy’s heart pounds loudly, and his hands are suddenly icy. He stares at the spooky house and says, “I ain’t afraid of nothing, and when I bring that violin out, your new Babe Ruth card is all mine!” Johnny nods his head thoughtfully, “Deal!” The Haunted Violin is based on a story Dad, (Roy), told us. Strange sounds were often heard coming from the old abandoned house and it remained empty till the source of the mysterious sounds were discovered. This story would be great for the four-to-eight-year-old age group. Children love a scary story, but also appreciate an ending where the mystery is resolved in a non threatening way.
