The Lovereading4Kids comment
Maggie Pearson has collected folk tales and legends from around the world to create a collection guaranteed to give readers goosebumps. Ghosts, vampires, werewolves and many more supernatural creatures not so familiar to British readers populate the stories. Each one is skilfully told in just a couple of pages, each one leaves its own impression on the reader. Some stories are cheerful, and will make you laugh; others are haunting, in every sense of the word; some are genuinely chilling. This collection is proof, if it were needed, that there’s nothing so satisfying as a well-told ghost story. ~ Andrea Reece

A stunning selection of folk tales and legends about things that go bump in the night. A wide variety of traditional stories from all over the world, ranging from magical to farcical, unnerving to terrifying. Delightfully illustrated in paper-cut style by Francesca Greenwood.
