13 Scary Ghost Stories

by Marianne Carus Illustrated by Youngsheng Xuan
This collection of thirteen scary stories from around the world is perfect for young readers looking for a frightening (but not terrifying) read.

Readers will meet thirteen ghosts, werewolves, skeletons, and other creepy characters in this spine-tingling collection of scary stories. In these tales no place is safe--a ghost could appear in a crowded swimming pool, a sunny beach, or right in your own backyard! Prepare to meet spirits from all over the world-- the enchanted bagpipes that long to be returned to their original owner, the haunted castle filled with angry ghosts, a ghost dog who comes back to life to save her pups, and more!
