Unfold a camp chair, huddle close to the fire, and get ready for 30 creepy tales of ghostly hauntings, eerie happening, and other strange occurrences from times past. Set deep in the woods where no sane person would dare to go, along murky bottomless lakes, and on cobblestone streets that empty before sundown, the stories in this entertaining and compelling collection will have you looking over your shoulder again and again. Bone-chilling, frightful folklore traditions are kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S.E. Schlosser and through artist Paul Hoffman's evocative illustrations. You'll meet ghosts and witches, hear things that go bump in the night, and feel an icy wind on the back of your neck even as you inch closer to the crackling, glowing embers. Whether read in a group around the campfire on a dark and silent night or alone with a flashlight from the safety of your sleeping bag, this is a collection to treasure.
