Synopsis: Certain to prickle the skin and haunt the memory, these stories are ideal for sharing by reading aloud.
In her second chilling collection of ghost stories for DK, Vivelo delves once again into the mysterious nature of human life- and death- in eight eerie tales. "A Game of Statures" has an unnerving, icy effect on a young boy's classmates. "A Dog Named Ransom" helps to reveal a critical clue in a murder mystery. And a young girl and her classmates discover that nothing is scarier than "When Nothing's There at All." Every one of the eight strange and scary movies in this volume transcends ordinary ghost story fare. They are works of literary quality that achieve their effects by unearthing and exploring the unusual-and sometimes awful-powers of the human psyche.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7?A collection of eight delightfully scary stories. They won't cause nightmares but will send delicious tingles down the spine. It is only on deeper reflection that the subtitle truly comes into play. The tales are carefully constructed on several levels. They can be read merely for their creepy twist or scare value. A closer reading will allow for the exploration of characters and for the strong but subtly delivered messages to come through. It is this depth and added dimension that makes this book fascinating. The ghosts, spirits, time travel, and artifices are all familiar to the genre, but Vivelo twists the familiar to make each telling original and fresh. The dialogue rings true when read aloud. There is certainly the opportunity for discussion when the reading is done. Even the format is fresh. The pages are longer and narrower than standard juvenile fare and plenty of white space makes the print easy to read. A good addition with many possibilities for a variety of readers.?Molly S. Kinney, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
