School Library Journal - 04/01/2017 Gr 3 Up—Elementary schoolers are invited to enter the realm of the paranormal and discover real-life grisly murders, hauntings, and curses. Each volume retells a handful of spooky tales, from ghosts at the Millicent Library in Fairhaven, MA, to vampires at the legendary Panteón de Belén cemetery in Guadalajara, Mexico (though only the English translation of the cemetery's name is provided in the text). The straightforward text and print size make this set useful as a hi-lo series. The narratives are suspenseful but appropriate for the audience. Each spread is a mixture of nightmarish photographs of historical places and crime scenes and CGI supernatural entities, shadows, and more. VERDICT Not for the faint of heart, this series will delight fans of bloody human history. - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
