Overview

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

"Time hasn't dulled the suspense and humor of Irving's chilling tale....The added treat here is the inviting art of Will Moses." --Parents' Choice

Told true to the original, the tale of the Headless Horseman and his effect on Ichabod Crane is enhanced by brooding, fitting folk-art illustrations.

"Will Moses, the great-grandson of Grandma Moses, has illuminated the original with a fluent retelling and handsome illustrations in an eminently suitable folk-art style....The dynamic full-color illustrations make the book spectacular....Simply splendid!" --The Horn Book, starred review

"The text is lively and compelling [and] the primitive paintings enhance the Hudson Valley setting." --School Library Journal

About the Author

Washington Irving, one of the first American authors to earn his living from writing, was born in 1783 and died in 1859.

Painting is as much a part of the Moses family tradition as the family homestead in Eagle Bridge, New York. There Will Moses has painted since he was a little boy, learning firsthand from his grandfather, folk artist Forrest Moses, who learned from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses. Developing his own folk style, Will has become an internationally beloved artist in his own right, his work displayed in collections throughout the world, including that of the White House. His folk art can also be found in such books as The Night Before Christmas, Will Moses' Mother Goose, and Mary and Her Little Lamb

I honestly loved this book. It captures the moment and it's like putting that moment in front of you. The only problem was that it was not a chapter book/novel. I was expecting to be reading it for the next few days, however, it's only forty something pages. I still HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has always been, and always will be, my favorite story. The rich imagery, Irving's incredible writing style, the unforgetable character of Ichabod Crane and the timeless image of him being chased by the Headless Horseman...simply the best!

Ever since I was a kid, 'The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow' has been my all-time favorite story. It has stood the test of time and will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come. The image of the Headless Horseman chasing Ichabod Crane through the spooky forests of Sleepy Hollow...it just doesn't get any better than this! A must-have for any Halloween get-together, or for anyone who just enjoys great literature!

Walked in. He had a raven on his shoulder, and a black sword on his back. (In case you are wondering, this character looks and acts like Karl from 'the law of talos' on youtube. However, for the purpose of this rp, he is an ordinary human, rather than the statue that he is in the youtube thing.)

He wiped the brow from his face as he scurried up a tree in silence. Luke hugged his knees, and leaned against the tree, slowly exhaling. He gripped his guns, and closed his eyes, daring not to experience this. Too much has happened. This was his home. He didn't want to believe it

She stepped out of the barren forest but quickly stepped back in after hearing foot steps. She climbed the tree carfully and waited at the top...

The 18-year-old girl crept through the wasteland that she used to call her home. It had been burnt down by a hoard of Statists when she was 16, two years ago, when the government had become this bad.
