Jennifer Carranza (jennifercarranza) | 3 comments I read this book in approximately 2005. This particular story that I'm searching for has a man arrive in town for a funeral. He is asked to watch the body over night so nothing disturbs it and the family can sleep. I believe a weasel or other rodent like creature keeps coming to the window and peering in, but runs away when it sees he is still awake and watching. Near morning, he dozes off and is awoken by the family moving around. All seems fine. When he leaves, his nose melts off, because the weasel (witch in disguise?) ate it and replaced it with wax.

Another story involves a haubted hay ride through a barn. The boy stationed in the barn sees a ghost with wire or rope around his neck.
