I read this book because my daughter was reading it and wanted me to read it with her. I found it to be very interesting even though written for a much younger age than myself. A very good ghost novel.

A favorite ghost read for Elementary school level readers! It is a nice ghost story with the right amount of spooky in it for a younger reader, but not enough chills to stir up nightmares.

This is a good easy read story of a ghost who lures children into a pond to drown.

I remember reading this book as a child, and enjoying the story. I read my copy the day I received it and it was everything that I remember it to be. I recommend this book to anyone with children or anyone that just enjoys a good story.

Wait Till Helen Comes was popular when I was a child (about a million years ago -- ok, maybe about 20 years ago), and I remembering feeling both intrigued and horrified by the ghostly Helen. This is one of the books that planted the horror fiction seed in my mind, and I'd recommend it for 8-12 year old girls who enjoy supernatural tales but aren't quite ready for YA.
