Opinion

From Library Staff

First published in 1981 for young readers, this title and it's sequels have been on the challenged list for years as "unsuited for age group, violence." The stories are both traditional and original ghost stories, tales of weird happenings, witches, and graveyards.

Stories of ghosts and witches, "jump" stories, scary songs, and modern-day scary stories.

Spooky tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright. RL 4.1 640L
