Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Are all the lights on? <br> Is there a parent in the house?<br> Are the windows shut and locked? Double-check! <br> <br> They HAVE to be if you are going to read this book, which is undoubtedly the scariest rendition of one of the greatest ghost stories ever told: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. <br> <br> While you may have heard of Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, and the Headless Horseman, you've never SEEN them quite like this -- through the macabre imagination of the inimitable Gris Grimly.<br> <br> So, take a deep breath and take a long look. And you may want to bring a flashlight to bed with you tonight....

Horn Book Review

These adaptations are so poor that it is a disgrace for the original author's name to appear on the book; the old classic comic-book renditions had more integrity. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
