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
