The eleventh book in the bestselling series of hauntingly true Canadian stories — more chilling than ever!


In this terrifying collection of haunted stories, author Joel A. Sutherland has put together even more chilling ghost stories from all across our spooky land, including:

  • A hateful house torments a new bride in Victoria, British Columbia.
  • The chime of an old clock makes a grim prediction for a family in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
  • The sound of mysterious footsteps signals the presence of spirits at a fire hall in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.

Moody black-and-white illustrations and photographs enhance the hauntingly eerie read.

With its first volume published in 2002, the Haunted Canada series is now an award winning series with over 500,000 copies in print. Kids can’t get enough of these spooky tales that allow them to learn about the eeriest corners of our country.
