People all over the world have long believed that the dead can come back to visit the living. Worldwide, people envision see-through, airy, frightening beings who return to point out killers, complete unfinished work, visit loved ones, or seek vindication. Why does everyone imagine the same thing? Maybe it is not imagination...
In this latest Child's Eye View Book, Alan Leddon presents information on 60 types of Ghosts from world mythology, as well as thirty-eight mythological figures associated with ghosts and their journeys. A long vocabulary list of terms related to ghost studies and a list of fifteen fairly well known hauntings round out the superb research of this excellent book. The author discusses why funerals are important (it is not why you think!) and explains why different cultures have a similar view of the restless dead.
This work is complete, accurate, and informative without speaking down to its target audience of 8 to 13 year olds. It is written to be palatable for adults and is just the right length for an easy read after work. This is not a collection of almost spooky stories...this is a textbook of real world beliefs and practices.
