While there have been collections of ghost stories and fantasy tales before Chills and Thrills, none have so completely combined all the frightening and magical elements that have enchanted and spooked children for generations. Filled with scary stories, poems, spells, superstitions, and even recipes, and beautifully designed with vintage art and illustrations, Chills and Thrills will provide many nights of creeps and shivers that will last well beyond Halloween Eve.

Included in this hauntingly fun little book are:

• Ghost Stories: Including such classics as "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," "The Monkey's Paw," and "The Judge's House"

• Tales of Magic and Fantasy: From classics by H.G. Wells, Mark Twain, and Mary Shelley

• Poems: Including Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" and the Witches' Chant from Shakespeare's Macbeth

• Spells: For kids and grown-ups alike to try at home...Abracadabra!

• Curses: Gone unexplained for centuries, discover the truth behind curses such as the Burton Agnes Skull and the Tower of London.

• Superstitions, Legends, and Lore: Helpful advice and history on such mystical items as mirrors and candles, as well as the meaning behind All Hollows Eve, and the legends of Merlin the Magician and Harry Houdini

• Magic Tricks: Complete with instructional illustrations, perform amazing feats like how to make someone float on air and how to read an invisible message.

• Treats to make: Guaranteed to bring ghosts, witches, and wizards to the table, recipes include Graveyard Brownies, Eyeball Cookies, and a Witches' Brew.
