Many kids claim to have seen ghosts in all sorts of places—cemeteries, bedrooms, attics, schools, roadways, forests, caves. Often, experts were called in to investigate these apparent hauntings, and most of the time these so-called experts walked away baffled. The only thing that everyone could agree on was that something very weird had happened, something that could never ...more

I've read this book back when I was a 7th grader and I didn't remember anything from it except for the stories' titles. Anyway, it was fun reading it again with my younger cousin and sister. I'd say the stories in this book are kind of cool; they all seemed to me as a teenager good attempt of telling ghost stories, but I didn't really think of them as "true ghost stories" as what the book claims they are. I don't see any reason of being scared of ghosts, I think it would be mild cool if I ever m ...more

I read many of the stories in this book to the kids in October. The stories were a little to scary for them so we stopped reading it. My son started to think that ghosts were in his room and my daughter didn't want to go to sleep with her light off.
Not recomended for a first and third grader!

Well, this is for kids but let me tell you there were a couple of stories that really freaked me out.
I listened to this on audiobook and John Ratzenbergerwas the narrator for this (he was Cliff on Cheers). He does not do female voices very well and for the most part his voice kind of put me on edge a little.
I think if kids like this sort of thing then it is a good thing to listen too, there are 11 stories in all and most of them are pretty lame.
I enjoyed this because it was a short audio book.

One of my favorites.I enjoy reading it. A lot of these stories are really creepy and kind of scary, but I just don't put it down. Its not very long, an easy read. A couple of my favorite stories in this book are The Devil's Garden, which has to do with the ghost of a little girl who haunts two kids, and The Secret of Room 333, where a boy named Adam who needs in help in math is tutored by the ghost of a teacher at his Catholic school. I wish a ghost would help me with math *sigh*.
Good stories.

I liked these books. I like Allan Zullo and I really like the stories in these books. I think all younger kids (Upper elementary, early middle school) These books are quick reads and quite intresting. (Even if the stories are exagerrated.) So if you like short ghost stoires read these books.

This is my fear level for ghost stories!! LOL when the narrator John Ratzenberger mentioned "Cheers".

Supposed to be true stories. Some of them beautiful, other really creepy. Ideal stories to tell/listen to at Halloween, not alone but with friend or family, to get in a Halloween mood.
