Description-

  • The original American ghost story
    North of New York City lies Sleepy Hollow, a secluded glen rumored to be the home of countless phantoms and specters. Chief among them is the Headless Horseman, the ghost of a Hessian soldier whose head was removed by a stray cannonball in the Revolutionary War. He rides across the glen each night and disappears in a flash of fire and brimstone at the bridge near the Old Dutch Burial Ground.
    Ichabod Crane, a superstitious schoolteacher who recently arrived from Connecticut, wants to marry Katrina Van Tassel, the only child of a wealthy farmer. The locals spook him with story after story about the ghosts of Sleepy Hollow. Late one night, he spies a menacing figure at a crossroads. Worse yet, the man's head appears to be on his saddle. Crane has only one chance to survive—he has to make it to the bridge before it's too late.
    This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

About the Author-

  • Washington Irving (1783–1859) was one of the most acclaimed storytellers in American literature. Named for George Washington, he wrote The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle as well as numerous histories on the subjects of Alhambra, Christopher Columbus, and Muhammad. He died soon after finishing a biography of his namesake and is buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    September 1, 1987
    Mystery, suspense, legend, romance and humor can all be found in Wolkstein's fine retelling of Washington Irving's classic folktale. Through the gluttonous Ichabod Crane and the devilish prankster Bron Bones, children are transported into a foul nightmare: being chased by a headless horseman who's searching a shadowy forest for his lost head. Wolkstein weaves reality and imagination with simple, eloquent sentences. Alley's graphic watercolors skillfully portray both the humorous Icabod with his pointed nose and long feet, and the gothic underworld of the haunted forest where even the horses become demonic. Ages 6-9.

  • Edgar Allan Poe

    "Exceptional talent . . . I am one of his most ardent admirers. I admired Mr. Irving's work so much, in fact, that I gave it the ultimate praise. I 'borrowed it.' "
