Book Description

Okay I can't do this anymore, with a shaking hand I reached out; hoping that nothing from under my bed would come out and grab me, I turned on the light.

Hailey and Jared go back to the old antique store and Mrs. Rhodes has another spooky story that goes with an old Jack in the Box.

Even though Hailey is a girl, you'd have to call her a tomboy as she loves adventures with her best friend Jared, and has no problem getting in and out of spooky situations! She, Jared and her beloved bike Blue, manage to keep their lives pretty exciting and sometimes they are not sure whether it's ghosts or just their imagination. You'll just have to decide which one it ends up being!

Warning: My short stories are for children and the young at heart. If you're too old to remember your childhood, these aren't for you! (:

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful imagery May 30, 2012
By mr dead
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
i got it the second i noticed it. the reason why? i have read a fair few of these stories before. the imagery i refer to in the subject line is that flavour of something that seems to be lost today. x boxes and reality TV have taken over but it is nice to see that the pleasant world of youthful carefree adventure can be conjured up once in a while. is that not what escapism is all about? you read this story and you remember that kind of world where everything was happy and content
im pretty sure that if you have children you could read this to or with them and they will love it. my daughter is older and i read this by myself and loved it.
thats the reason why i got this one as soon as i saw it. thats the reason why i will do the same with the next one after that and so on.
escapism at its best, have a read and enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Creepy Fun January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you read previous stories adventures of Hailey and Jared, you might remember a time they visited an antique store. This story takes them back to that store! It's a blast from the past but this time it's not a clock they find but an old jack in the box and they learn a story about it; a story that will stick with them for a very long time to come, especially Hailey.

This was yet another great story by the amazing Bon Rose. It was a nice short story for kids of all ages that was just plain fun to read. Like the other stories in the Hailey and Jared series, it takes you back to being a kid when the days were long and carefree and the next great adventure was just a stones throw away and a leaf blowing in the wind was enough to spark the imagination. These stories are a great reminder of what it's like to be a kid!

4.0 out of 5 stars The old jack in the box July 15, 2012

An enjoyable story. Perfect for children who love a scare. I would have loved this read as a child. The children in the story are believable, and it was well written. I can recommend this one.

More About the Author

Born in Iowa, I grew up reading the Nancy Drew Mysteries. As a teen I did a rough draft of a short story but it wasn't until a few years ago that I finally took my time to sit down and re-write it, and then had it published as an e-short story called Old Jacob. I now have several short stories and two books. These stories were written with my grandchildren in mind and are based on some adventures from my childhood. I have also written three short stories for adults, "Dying to Write", "Death by Love" and "The Rabbit's Foot". All my books and short stories are also available on Barnes&Noble and Smashwords.
