Jewish stories of the supernatural are nothing new, the first being in the Bible, when Saul asks the Witch of Endor to invoke the spirit of Samuel.

The stories inside, each marvelously illustrated with pen-and-ink drawings, are suspenseful and haunting, as the children face not only apparitions but also loneliness and loss.
