Chills and Thrills is a unique collection of exciting and magical tales from around the world and across the ages. It features some of the world's most acclaimed storytellers - Italo Calvino, Robert Louis Stevenson, Mary Shelley, Thomas Hardy, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Brothers Grimm, William Shakespeare, H. G. Wells and Stephen Leacock, among others. Join Perseus on his dangerous quest for the Gorgon's head; watch with breathless horror and disgust as Frankenstein's monster first opens his watery yellow eyes; learn about the witch who enjoys nothing more than eating the fools who come to live in her house; then travel to the Arctic to see a frozen corpse look you straight in the eye. In this marvelous collection, each storyteller reveals a rare, imaginative vision; suspense and horror mingle in a manner sure to send shivers along the stiffest backbone. The titles alone - "The Body Snatcher" and "Beginning with the Ears" - are enough to rekindle the imagination and to inspire feelings of apprehension and dread. With strikingly beautiful illustrations by John Mardon and Vesna Krstanovich, Chills and Thrills will be treasured by young readers everywhere. This collection combines more than twenty stories with breathtaking full-color art and black-and-white drawings. Chills and Thrills is sure to be read again and again. (2001)
