Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-Cohen has a knack for selecting ghost stories with unusual angles. In this revision of his 1978 book (Dutton), the focus is on child specters. Few new accounts have been added, but the audience appeal has definitely been enhanced. The writing style is crisper and more conversational. A larger typeface and a truly haunting jacket will attract readers. Many of the stories date from the 18th and 19th centuries, and some, such as the Wesley family poltergeist and the Tennessee Bell Witch, have appeared in many other sources. There is a fascinating chapter on modern young haunts, drawn from a 1992 magazine survey. The book strikes just the right balance between belief and skepticism, allowing young readers to evaluate the accounts for themselves. Libraries still holding the earlier edition will not find much new here, but others with a high demand for ghost tales will find this eerie title a good choice.

Young Ghosts is written by Daniel Cohen (author of Pan Am 103 with his wife Susan). The book is a short engrossing and easy to read book about ghosts of people who died young and premature. I don't think Cohen believes in ghosts but he does an objective point of view in pointing out ghost legends of American history. Cohen's book is great for those young readers who show interests in paranormal or want to learn about the ghosts that supposedly haunts places.

I'm not a really big fan of the supernatural. But after reading this book it really made me think. I especially liked the story the Avenging Ghost. It was the best.

I've been a fan of the supernatural since I was a kid. Not to say I believe in it all, but I always find myself looking into it.
Daniel Cohen has to be one of the most prolific non-fiction writers out there, and this book does not disappoint. I have read several dozen 'true ghost' books and for some reason this one was one of the creepiest...perhaps since it was about children, but regardless, if you're tired of stale, encylopedia style books that don't really get into the sightings, this is the book for you.
