Horn Book Review

Some of these short tales are spooky enough or grisly enough to chill the bones; others are silly and are sure to elicit a chuckle or a groan. Powerful dreams and odd visitations of death abound, eerily depicted in Gammell's grotesque sketches. Notes on each story identify sources and variants. Bib. From HORN BOOK 1991, (c) Copyright 2010.
