Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stories great series This is the third and final book in this series. This book has seven short stories meant to teach a lesson. They are a little dark but not so scary that most young readers would not enjoy them. They are sort of a book version of ghost stories kids would tell at a sleep over to try to scare each other. Each of the three books in the series is enjoyable and well written but this one is my favorite in the series. In this volume we encounter a phantom text messenger, a black cat that brings good luck not bad luck, and being haunted by the face of whom you lied to last. We also encounter a skeleton that gets up and wanders away and mysterious hitchhikers who perished years ago. Also, it has a story where snobs learn that sometimes they get what they deserve not what they want. And finally there is a story about a family that ends up getting some help from a friendly phantom. Each of the stories is fun and frightening at the same time, in such a way that children will love them.
