The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Sleepy Hollow’s most famous supernatural phenomenon is the ghost of the Headless Horseman, said to be a Hessian soldier who lost his head to a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The Horseman is seen most often riding by the church, where local historians say he was buried. He is believed to be always in search of his head. Ichabod is fascinated by this story, being especially interested (and prone to believe) in tales of the supernatural.

My daughter really likes it!!!!!
The story begins very calm and slow, quite possibly an ode to the name of the little village of Sleepy Hollow. Towards the end, things seem too calm, to an uneasy point. Then, like thunder, the headless Hessian rears up out of nowhere and frightens the living daylights out of the reader! Quite succinctly, I really enjoyed this tale more than I ever imagined I would.
Looking for something to put you to sleep!? This is the book for you. I wanted something thrilling & spooky. This wasn't thrilling or spooky until the last 10 pages. Honestly didn't even want to finish it. That's how boring it was.
