Hauntings- School Library Journal
Haunted objects are the focus of this hair-raising series. Readers will be left with chills after reading about Little Robert, a haunted doll, or the SS Ourang Medan, a ghost ship. Each book in the series retells three haunting tales in easy-to-read text with bolded vocabulary and plenty of white space. Spooky images and text boxes with additional information round out the pages. The back matter includes questions, an index, and a glossary. QR codes are peppered throughout the books with links to videos, activities, and information that help flesh out the stories. This is not a research series and the author does not address alternative theories to hauntings and curses. VERDICT A wonderfully creepy way to build reading skills.
