Synopsis:
Are all the lights on?

Is there a parent in the house?

Are the windows shut and locked? Double-check!

They HAVE to be if you are going to read this book, which is undoubtedly the scariest rendition of one of the greatest ghost stories ever told: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.

While you may have heard of Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, and the Headless Horseman, you've never SEEN them quite like this -- through the macabre imagination of the inimitable Gris Grimly.

So, take a deep breath and take a long look. And you may want to bring a flashlight to bed with you tonight.

Recommended By:
I know the basic story but had never read it. It was on my 100 book list to read.

Review:
I didn’t care for the style of writing. The story doesn’t get as deeply into it as I would like either. I didn’t love it…

On the bright side, at least it wasn't very long. :-)

(I'm sloughing through Don Quixote at the moment.)
