More Bones: Scary Stories From Around the World
Could you outrun a corpse? Or learn secrets from a severed head? Have you heard the story about the school where the students don’t get to leave? Or the monstrous sea ghosts with sharp green teeth? Many of these tales go back hundreds of years and to the farthest corners of the earth. But as diverse as they are, they also reveal one important truth: everyone loves a scary story! The authors of this book have dug deeply – from Egypt to Iceland, from Spain to Hawaii – to find the spookiest stories that people huddle close to hear, by campfires and hearths, in huts and palaces. Listen! Can you hear the bones begin to rattle?
