Great Halloween book for middle grades and up!

My favorite Halloween tale is, of course, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving.  Most kids have seen the video by a certain age, but the story is something else again.  Or could it be that I'm biased because I write scary stories?  Maybe.  All I know is, reading it brings a whole new understanding of poor Ichabod Crane.  Try it.  See what you think!  And then, move on to MY scary story for kids age twelve and up:
The Phantom Student
In The Phantom Student, Jase and Stevie-girl must find out why a phantom is haunting Stevie. They think it is related to the new student, a boy who is being bullied because he has something called Tourette Syndrome.  

They've heard it said that evil never skips a generation, and on a dark and desperate Halloween night, the entire town will find out just how evil, and how deadly, bullying can be. 

Afterthought: The Phantom Pilot, book one in the Phantom series, is included in this volume!
