From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-Cohen has a knack for selecting ghost stories with unusual angles. In this revision of his 1978 book (Dutton), the focus is on child specters. Few new accounts have been added, but the audience appeal has definitely been enhanced. The writing style is crisper and more conversational. A larger typeface and a truly haunting jacket will attract readers. Many of the stories date from the 18th and 19th centuries, and some, such as the Wesley family poltergeist and the Tennessee Bell Witch, have appeared in many other sources. There is a fascinating chapter on modern young haunts, drawn from a 1992 magazine survey. The book strikes just the right balance between belief and skepticism, allowing young readers to evaluate the accounts for themselves. Libraries still holding the earlier edition will not find much new here, but others with a high demand for ghost tales will find this eerie title a good choice.
