An ancient ghost tries to frighten a new family away from his castle. A scientist’s potion reveals old secrets. And a street magician has one last trick up his sleeve.

Read these spooky (but not too scary!) illustrated stories–and then act them out yourself!

This beautifully illustrated Companion Reader is an exact transcript of Jim Weiss’s award-winning storytelling performance of three classic tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Rudyard Kipling, and Oscar Wilde.The Reader can be enjoyed on its own, or used along with the recorded performance to build strong language skills.

Listen to the Jim Weiss stories, read along to improve fluency, vocabulary, and grammar, and then speak great words and sentences out loud by practicing and performing the short, accessible dramatic versions of Jim’s performances.
