GHOST IN THE HOUSE by Daniel Cohen

Age Range: 10 - 13

Pub Date: Sept. 1st, 1993
ISBN: 0-525-65131-4
Publisher: Dutton

 Nine brief tales of odd or supernatural doings in and around buildings--from the well-documented hauntings of Captain Despard's house in England and Vermont's Eddy farmhouse (the ``Spirit Capital of the World'') to the strange history of California's Winchester House and the many apparitions (including one of Dolley Madison) reported at Washington's Octagon. Cohen has delivered previous accounts of some of these incidents, but this simply phrased offering will draw less practiced readers. No source notes. Nicely mysterious, disturbing illustrations in dramatically graphic black and white. (Folklore. 10-13)
