I had really liked Michael Hague's collections of other stories, so I checked this one out from the library and it didn't disappoint. There were some classics that were fun to re-read as well as some stories that I wasn't familiar with.

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde
The Monkey's Paw by W. W. Jacobs
