What happens after that will give you quite a fright. The Headless Horseman is on the prowl, searching for his lost head. Does he encounter Ichabod?

The book contains sixteen beautiful black-and-white illustrations conceived by Fiza Pathan and executed by Farzana Cooper.
The quiet Dutch community of Sleepy Hollow lay in the Adirondack mountains on the western shore of the mighty Hudson River in Americas colonial period. The solitude of the woods was breathtaking, and not even a schoolmaster was immune from the eerie miasma which everyone knew permeated the dense forest. Written in 1820, Washington Irvings The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has become a classic of American literature, and has been retold in many different ways. Here is the original, from Irvings own hand.
