Ghoulies, ghosties, and long-leggety beasties inhabit these thirty chilling tales gathered from around the world. Creepy classic and contemporary stories from Australia, Germany, India, E1 Salvador, and elsewhere -- including a healthy helping of American apparitions -- will keep readers and listeners scared stiff. Do you dare walk down the lane where "Crooker Waits"? Or would you rather shake "The Hairy Hands"? Twenty eerie illustrations highlight this companion to Robert D. San Souci's earlier collections of scary stories, which School Library Journal called "an absolute delight. . . . Young readers will gobble up these thirty thrilling snacks and beg for more". Savor this supernatural treat for spine-tingling fun!
