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

Synopsis

Goblins and Ghosties Stories of Darkness from Around the World by Maggie Pearson

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.

About the Author

Whilst her three children were growing up, Maggie Pearson held a variety of jobs - including bar maid, librarian and freelance journalist - but she now pursues a career as a highly-successful children's writer. Her first novel, Owl-Light, was shortlisted for the WH Smith Mind-boggling Book Award. She lives mostly in a sixteenth-century cottage in Suffolk with her husband, two cats and a goat, and sometimes in the French Pyrenees. She spent years compiling this extraordinary collection of folk tales as a labour of love. She has also written A Slip in Time and The Eyes of Doctor Dee for the Victorian Flashbacks series, Is There Anybody There? for the Wired Up series, and the folk tale collection The House of the Cats.
