Helquist's new illustrations for Schwartz's classic collections of ghost stories inhabit an altogether more benign universe than the nightmarish Stephen Gammell originals. These editions are handsome and accessible, ceding the stories themselves pride of place; now young readers have a choice of how scared they want to be--just a little, or a whole lot.

A new horse
Room for one more

Wait till Martin comes
The ghost with bloody fingers.
