The description in the database for this book is wrong. This is an abridged book. This is the description from Amazon:This atmospheric retelling of Washington Irving's classic is ably complemented with detail-rich illustrations. Ages 5-9.
An old classic, completely adapted for a young reader with wonderful illustrations on every other page!
The folks of the valley are supersitious, believing in witches and goblins and ghosts and things they cant see, as much as they believe in the real world around them.Thrill to the tales of the headless horseman.
My 8 yr old daughter is into scary books. This one seemed to do the trick for her.
I loved the language in this book. The narrative was enjoyable and kept my interest. This was a fun and quick read.
Anote from the back of this new book: The folks of the valley are a suspicious lot, believing in whitches and goblins and things they can,t see, as much as they believe in the real world around them. This leads to some mighty adventures for some wonderful characters like Ichabod Crane, Rip Van Wrinkle Brom Bones and a host of others.Thrill to the tales of the headless horseman,the long nights sleep that lasted twenty years, and the most surprising ending to any treasure hunt ever.
