See all formats and editions

The author of wildly popular ghost stories, Mary Downing Hahn has created a group of tales for fans of her "scary but not too scary" books.

Even the stories without actual ghosts are spooky. Each tale turns something ordinary - a pigeon, a white dress, a stranger on the bus, a puppet - into a sinister link to to the supernatural.

For the human characters, secrets from the past or careless behaviour in the present can lead to serious trouble.

All the stories have a young person as the central character, so all will resonate with young readers who enjoy the eerie, the creepy, and the otherworldly.

In a concluding note, the author talks about how she came to write ghost stories. AGES: 8 to 12 AUTHOR: Mary Downing Hahn, a former children's librarian, is the award-winning author of many popular ghost stories.
