Review: The Headless Horseman

User Review  - Robert - Goodreads

Based on the familiar Washington Irving tale, this was pretty good for an early reader book. It presented the story well. While I suppose it had some "spook" to it, it wasn't too bad. We learn all about Icabod Crane and his cowardly ways. Read full review
