About this title


Ghost stories around the campfire or under the covers are a favorite pastime of children all over the world. Dennis Pepper has collected classic and contemporary legends, folktales, short stories, and poems from many lands and cultures that feature a wide assortment of ghosts. Some are chillingly spooky, others merely silly and strange. All are good and scary and guaranteed to curl your toes and rattle your bones. Some of the best writers and artists for children take great pleasure in sending a chill up your spine in the tale of "The Haunted Mill," the eerie "Spook House," the macabre "Rats," and thirty-five other frightful stories. This is a great book to read aloud or even by yourself (if you dare!).
