Synopses & Reviews
Ghosts, specters, the dead, and the undead fill the pages of this spectacular gift book by master storyteller Jane Yolen. From the ghostly goadings of an insistent - and recently deceased - choir teacher to the most frightening prom date you never want to have, this riveting collection of poems and stories is sure to leave even the most skeptical of readers all shivers and gooseflesh. Lavishly illustrated by David Wilgus's haunting pencil drawings, each tale is prefaced by a note from the author in which she discusses the writer's craft and why it is that storytellers - and their listeners - are drawn to spooky yarns.
