Rate this:
This tantalizing volume collects creepy stories from around the globe, nine first published in the award-winning children's magazine Cricket, and four previously unpublished. If you dare, turn off all the lights and take the plunge into darkness and terror. You never know when you might run into a ghost, or host of ghosts! It could be on the side of a desolate country road, underwater in a crowded public swimming pool, or behind the windswept dunes on a sunny stretch of beach. From hauntedScottish bagpipes to the terrifying Weeping Woman of Mexican folklore to a vengeful clan of Japanese ghouls, these spine-tingling tales depict spirits from many diverse cultures. Among the 13 stories guaranteed to chill your soul, stop your heart, and send you shivering under the covers are: "A Place of Haunts" by Robert Culp; "The Mysterious Girl at the Pool" by Juanita Havill; "Bones" by Frank Dodge; "Triple Anchovies" by Marion Dane Bauer; and "The Airi" by Deepa Agarwal.
