Chilling Gothic Tales

Del Negro, Janice M. (2007). Passion and Poison. 64 pages. Grades 4 and up.

These eight tales are about strong women who are determined to stand up for what is right, even beyond the grave. Del Negro uses vivid imagery and detailed language in each story, from Elizabeth Frye who could change into a cat to Giovanna who avenged her sister's death. Eerie pencil illustrations set the mood. These are spine-tingling stories to read aloud on a spooky night.
