Goblins and Ghosties Stories of Darkness from Around the World Review

Featured Books for 7+ readers Featured Books for 9+ readers

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
