Publisher Comments:

Available for the first time in a Yearling edition, Robert D. San Souci contiues the chills and thrills with tales guaranteed to give you goosebumps! Thirty spine-chilling stories from around the world provide plenty of shivers in this spooky collection.

Or make the acquaintance of The Skull That Spoke and The Monster of Baylock--but beware of spectral visitors like The Blood-Drawing Ghost. This exciting mixture of classic and contemporary tales from Mexico, China, Poland, Nigeria, and other lands near and far is perfect for hair-raising reading!
