KIRKUS REVIEW

Sometimes glowering with horror and sometimes glimmering with magic, these stories, while lacking the classic touch of Collier or Bradbury, are energetically inventive. In ""Busby's Rat"", a legless man charms the rats who will keep a malevolent vigil with his killer; a third-grader's wish comes true -- his teacher is turned into a rabbit; in ""Wynken, Blynken and Nod"", three little boys(?) goblins(?) or midgets(?) terrorize two aging spinsters. Mostly small town settings, some period, contribute to the Grand Guignol.
