Michael Teitelbaum has gathered urban legends from each of the 50 states and put them together in this creepy and intriguing book. In addition to some standard urban legend classics, Teitelbaum brings in some local legends that I had never heard before. Some of the stories are scary. Others are just weird–and a few are kind of lame. But most of these legends will appeal to kids and teens who love ghost stories and “strange but true” tales.
