Summary:

"Ghosts Aghast! explores another true and spine-chilling topic that kids are sure to love: ghosts! Packed with facts but light in tone, award-winning author Kerrie Logan Hollihan takes a humorous but meticulously researched, well-balanced look at ghost appearances, unsolved mysteries, and eerie hauntings around the world - from the perennial Vanishing Hitchhiker, the child-nabbing La Llorona, and Korean water ghosts to school hauntings and wraiths in the White House (including the well-documented ghost of President Abraham Lincoln). For readers looking for a new twist on a much-beloved subject, this quirky nonfiction narrative, illustrated in color, is the perfect fit. Includes endnotes, bibliography, and index"-- Provided by publisher.
