Superstitions, Legends and Haunts: That offer helpful advice and history on such mystical items as mirrors, candles, and ladders, as well as the meaning behind All Hollows Eve, the Jack-o-Lantern, The Banshee, and such legends as Harry Houdini and Merlin the Magician.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Little Big Book of Chills and Thrills?

Just the Best Ever!  Aug 20, 2007
I have never written a review before today - but I bought this book 3 days ago and I am just enchanted with it :) At first I wandered through it and then I went from beginning to end... It has wonderful excerpts from books as well as short stories to tell. The vintage artwork is just beautiful throughout the book and just adds to the over all "found treasure" feel. There are wonderful poems (my favorite is now The Transylvania Dream), "spells"(light hearted) and magic tricks for kids. Buy this book if you love all things Halloween - if your looking for goth type stuff this is not for you - this has all the charm of yesterday brought to today to enjoy. I love this book!!! 5 stars is not enough :-)

Interesting reading, but, not a small child's book.  Nov 7, 2005
I own The Big Small Book for Moms and was expecting the same kind of levity in reading. Needless to say, I will not be reading it to my children anytime soon. I did ,however, enjoy reading this book at Halloween! Unexlpained phenomena, crafts, and recipes all wrapped up in one book!
 
When they say "Little Big", they mean it  Oct 7, 2005
I bought this book on a whim from Barnes and Noble and was not disappointed. First of all, I love vintage prints, products, and artwork especially for the holidays. This is a cute Halloween book full of old-fashion pictures, easy recipes, famous scary stories and poems, and blurbs about superstitions. For children it even has a hand full of magic tricks (that really work) and 'spells' (for "those aspiring wizards and witches"). Whether you are a vintage aficionado or a child who loves Halloween, this book is a great keepsake.
