Year 6: Snow Horse and Other Stories by Joan Aiken

Joan Aiken was famous for her spine-tingling ghost stories, and this collection presents five classic Aiken chillers in a new, accessible edition. Ghosts appear both in the strangest and most familiar places, but their effect is often the same, inspiring shock and chills in the characters and readers alike. None of these stories will be easily forgotten!
