KIRKUS REVIEW

Schwartz' latest folklore collection will be a popular sourcebook for ghost story sessions. Some of these tales end in shock screams by the teller and some in laughs. Most are old, but some, about a girl driver followed home or a babysitter receiving threatening phone calls, have contemporary settings. Whether the subject is a witch caught out, a girl dying of fright in a graveyard, or a wolf's revenge on a bounty hunter, all are perfectly tailored for telling aloud and splendidly illustrated with an appropriate blend of scraggly and truly eerie notes.
