This volume was a great disappointment to me after the first in this series (see my review for that title which had been outstanding) but I know that the series does pick up as I have tremendously fond memories of having both read and enjoyed a couple of other volumes that come much later on in the series as a child. I recently started to collect them all again - beginning with the very first one which as already stated was delightful, but despite the striking artwork for this second volume (even nicer than the first) this was a huge disappointment...

There are just nine stories in this - the first of which meant absolutely nothing to me, and which I found a bit pointless, and anyone picking up this book from the series for the very first time and reading the first story, may well be put off the series, and could be forgiven for not believing what a tremendously successful series of books this would become due to future, and much better volumes...

The first real good story would not come here until well over halfway through the book (number six) entitled `Mr. Fox' in my opinion - yet it is sadly the shortest which is a great shame... The following story `His Own Number' is also good. Ironically, the longest story (which seems to drag on forever) turns out to be the worst of all, and does not come until the very end (the last one) with the most inappropriate title for any story that could ever be considered as a ghost story of any kind, called: `The Ugly-Wuglies' - a silly childish title, and it's absolutely DREADFUL! It was a tedious read, and it took all my stalwart powers to finish this book.

Can't wait to get to the next volume three in the series which I'm confident cannot be as bad as this, in view of the success of the series, and its place in popular story book history. Most, if not all the stories in this second volume are not Ghost Stories at all in the traditional sense, and most are simple nonsense...

Awful...

I bought this book because it was one that I'd read many spooky moons ago. It's a decent collection of spooky but not horrific tales. Right for it's intended age group.
