Ichabod Crane is the teacher in a little village called Sleepy Hollow. Everyone in Sleepy Hollow believes in ghosts and ghouls and loves to tell spooky stories, their favourite being the legend of the headless horseman. However, things become a little too real for Ichabod when that very ghost appears one night and chases him. Why is the horseman after Ichabod and will he escape? Carefully retold in clear contemporary language, and presented with stunning illustrations, these favourite horror classics will capture the hearts and imagination of young readers.
