Description

The sixth book in the bestselling series of hauntingly true Canadian stories - back, and scarier than ever!

For his brand-new story collection, author Joel A. Sutherland has scoured the country for more creepy and chilling tales. Get underneath the covers, because between these book covers are stories about . . .

? a supernatural sea hag that haunts Dobbin's Gardens marsh on Bell Island, Newfoundland and Labrador

? a used book from a Barrie, Ontario book shop that conjures up a ghostly figure that accompanies the buyer home

? a haunted playground at St. Ignatius School in Winnipeg, Manitoba

With moody black-and-white illustrations, and archival photos throughout, this collection is perfect for those who like a frightfully good read!
