Dead Good Read is just that-a thoroughly enjoyable collection of terrifying stories conceived by some of history's best-known and most-admired authors. This delightfully frightening volume brings together 21 of the all-time scariest, re-told for 9 to 14 year-olds. Young readers will relish every mesmerizing, blood-curdling moment of tales from the masters, including Edgar Allan Poe, Charles Dickens, Mary Shelly, Elizabeth Gaskell and Oscar Wilde. They'll be thrilled to read famous chillers, like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Phantom of the Opera and Dracula. And, they'll fall under the spell of less well-known but equally ghoulish works, like Madam Crowl's Ghost, The Dead Sexton and The Signal-man. Pictorial cloth with matching pictorial dust-jacket. Illustrated. 224pp. This book would make a great gift. Full refund if not satisfied.
