Haunted House: A Collection of Original Stories

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5?Amityville has nothing on The Close at 66 Brown's End. Each story in this spooky collection is set in a different room as a succession of owners encounter otherworldly housemates. In the kitchen, a cursed cook bakes highly unusual biscuits. An invisible puppy cries in the basement. A ghostly electric train runs in the attic. The connecting theme works well, although some readers may wonder why the house changed hands so many times. The short original tales range from chuckles to chillers and are reminiscent of campfire storytelling. Appropriately scary, photoreal black-and-white drawings accompany each selection. With no gratuitous violence or gore, this is a fine alternative to popular horror series.?Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, ILCopyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. ...
