The Little Giant Book of "True" Ghost Stories: 84 Scary Tales
Boo! 84 tales, terrifying and true, will send shivers down your spine, make your knees knock, and stand your hair on end. Violent ghosts, lost souls, and strange specters all wander spookily through these stories--and the creepy illustrations heighten the horror. Read a bone-chilling account of a night in a haunted house, and of a ghost who scared a dog to death. What would you do if a spirit kept messing things up after you, stealing clothes and food, and trying to wrap you in its arms? And one museum in Toronto appears to have more on the grounds than just fine art! Fly through time with a pilot who saw into the future --and foretold tragedy. Watch with astonishment as poltergeists wreak havoc, tapping and banging, turning lights on and off, and throwing over furniture. Meet a doll you won't want to play with, and a demonic hairdresser who'll really give you a bad hair day! The spirit of one sad boy, though, wanted only to see justice done. Many first-hand accounts tell of ghost ships, runaway trains, and phantom planes. Could they be true? Engineer J.M. Pinkney thought so. During a train voyage in 1892 he watched horrified as a fast-moving locomotive headed directly for his train. Pinkney didn't believe his friends when they claimed that the "daredevil driver" was a dead man, until he learned that the train had arrived safely at the station--without any driver. Don't let the icy grip of fear grow too tight--if you can help it! Sterling 352 pages, 4 3/16 x 5 1/4.
