Books for Halloween: For young adults
In this famous ghost story of early 19th-century America, Irving takes us to the quiet hamlet of Tarry Town, New York, where horror breaks out one fall evening. After skinny, socially awkward, and highly superstitious school teacher Ichabod Crane leaves a house party, hes pursued across Sleep Hollow by a headless horseman who rides in nightly quest of his [lost] head. Crane is never seen again, writes Irving, and the Tarry Town locals maintain to this day that Ichabod was spirited away by supernatural means. A scary, dramatic story that evokes a bygone era.
