Here in one shrink-wrapped set are re-issues of the four most popular books in the widely acclaimed Haunted Kids series. Each book sports a new, spooky cover in this collector’s edition four-pack. Written more than twenty years ago, all four books offer spine-chilling ghost stories that are based on, or inspired by, real-life case files. They are designed to keep a whole new generation of readers turning the pages long past their bedtime.
Many people, including kids, claim they have seen ghosts in all sorts of places like cemeteries, bedrooms, attics, schools, roadways, forests and caves. In many cases, experts were called in to investigate these so-called hauntings. Usually the experts walked away baffled. All they knew for sure was that something weird had happened that could not be fully explained.
In the first book in the series, Haunted Kids contains 11 chilling stories of young people who were haunted by ghosts — some friendly, some not so friendly. Among the stories: Grave Consequences, The Headless Trainman, the Secret of Room 333, The Thing in the Attic and The Warning.
Haunted Schools features bizarre accounts of kids encountering phantoms in big new schools, old one-room schoolhouses and fancy academies. Among the stories: The Kissing Ghost of Rosemont Academy; Screams of Horror, Cries of Terror; The Phantom Graduate and the Scene-Stealer.
In a sequel, Haunted Teachers features creepy accounts of phantoms — especially ghostly teachers — who have haunted teachers and students in the classroom, on the playground and at home. Among the stories: Curse of the Egyptian Bone, Dead Man’s Shadow, Time of Death, and The Mysterious Tapper.
And Haunted Pets (previously titled Haunted Animals), shares stories about kids who claim to have encountered spirits from the animal world — including pet dogs, a loving cat, a wild horse and a vengeful wolf. Among the stories: The Tell-Tale Bones, Bingo’s Secret, The Haunting Vengeance, and Rescue from the Beyond.
Do ghosts really exist? You might think so after reading the eerie in the Haunted Kids series.
