Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book awesome stories These seven stories are written for a young audience. They are geared for children in grades 2-4, and the stories will entertain and surprise. I became interested in the series because the covers grabbed my attention. The covers reminded me of the movie Princess Monoke, and I had to read these stories. This is the second book in this series that I read and the 7 short stories in it are wonderfully dark and spooky. The stories are fun to read, and will make some children think twice about their behavior or misbehavior. In each of the stories someone is taught a lesson and usually they deserved it. It is an interesting technique of teaching children how to behave better by scaring them a little bit. Well-written and entertaining.
