With bright, dynamic imagery and gripping text, this book asks the intriguing question, What if there was more to the ghostly fable than meets the eye? What if Washington Irving's legend of Sleepy Hollow was based on fact? And what if the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow was not unique, but merely one of a strange line of malevolent spirits sighted across the world, bringing misfortune to all that witness them? This book will intrigue young readers with long-forgotten lore about the headless spirits that have plagued mankind for centuries, and perhaps even now seek to invade our world.
