Review quote

"Captivating stories... The writing is consistently good.... The collection is appropriate for a wide range of YA readers with a taste for terror."--Booklist"A collection of wonderfully creepy, chilling, and occasionally funny stories that will be perfect for readers who have outgrown R. L. Stine's "Goosebumps" but aren't up to the horror of Stephen King.... The pen-and-ink illustrations are appropriately dark and enhance the mood created by these tales. A fine anthology to be enjoyed at Halloween, or anytime."--School Library Journal"Some of the ghosts in the stories are kind, some are destructive, and some lend a hand when least expected. Ghost story enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy this collection."--Book Reportshow more
