My Review and Recommendations

I'm so excited that these books have been re-released. (Click through the links above or the slideshow widget at the bottom of this post to download the books!) As someone who enjoys the original story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving and who loves Christopher Golden's writing, I raced through these books. Sleepy Hollow High offers twists, turns, and things that go bump in the night. Small town, new folks, old grudges, family ties, legendary hauntings, running through the woods - check, check, and check! 

I recommend this series to adults just as often as I recommend it to teens because I know people in their 20s and 30s who enjoyed books by Diane Hoh (Nightmare Hall, anyone?), Richie Tankersley Cusick, and R.L. Stine will also like Sleepy Hollow High.

I also look forward to seeing what Fringe creators Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci do with Washington Irving; they too are working on a new adaptation of the story of Sleepy Hollow for a television pilot now. If that pilot airs and goes to series, you bet I'll tune in...but I'll be wishing that Aimee and Shane Lancaster were part of the show, too!
