Horn Book Review

Helquist's new illustrations for Schwartz's classic collection of ghost stories inhabit an altogether more benign universe than the nightmarish 1981 Stephen Gammell originals, more mood-setting decorations than permanently etched images of horror. This new edition is handsome and accessible, ceding the stories themselves pride of place; now young readers have a choice of how scared they want to be -- just a little, or a whole lot. martha v. parravano (c) Copyright 2010.
