The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a short story written by Washington Irving in 1917. Based on the German folktale, the story is set in the Dutch culture of Post-Revolutionary War in New York State. The characters of Ichabod Crane and Katrina Van Tassel may have been based on local residents known by the author. In the story, a Headless Horseman haunted the town of Sleepy Hollow at night, searching for his head which was lost to a cannon ball during the war. One night the town's only school teacher, Ichabod Crane, has a chance encounter with the Headless Horseman which is still talked about to this day.

For the price....
I guess for the price it is okay for really young children. However, I was disappointed with the muffled sound quality. The pictures were engaging for little ones, but as an adult, the sound was very difficult to listen to.
an old favorite available to kids now
I loved this classic as a kid and now you child can enjoy it on the iphone/ipad. I highly recommend buying this app
Classic and Exciting!
My kids really enjoy reading this book! It's a bit scary for the young one - but she loves getting thru to the end!
