Book Description

3 Feb 2011 Puffin Classics
The legendary enchantment of Rip Van Winkle in the Kaatskill Mountains; the gruesome end of Ichabod Crane, who met the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow; the spectre bridegroom who turned out to be happily substantial; the pride of an English village and the come-uppance of the over-zealous Mountjoy - these witty, perceptive and captivating tales range from fantasy to romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Read 19 Jun 2014
By Dudders
Of course it contains well known stories, really interesting to read through them again! The sort of book you can take on a train, coach, and read and finish one of the short stories quite comfortably
