The Skull Talks Back and Other Haunting TalesBook - 2004
Inspired by stories from the rural south, a collection of terrifying tales includes a skinless witch, a talking skull, and a man more evil than the devil, as collected by the famous African-American writer Zora Neale Hurston.
Do you dare
to cross paths with ...
An enchantress who can slip
in and out of her skin,
A man more evil than the devil,
A skull who talks back,
A pair of creepy feet that can
walk on their own?
Spooky, chilling, and fantastical, this collection of six scary tales will send shivers up your spine!
The stories in the skull talks back have been selected from Every Tongue Got To Confess, Zora Neale Hurston's third volume of folklore. Through Joyce Carol Thomas's carefully adapted text and Leonard Jenkins's arresting illustrations, the soulful, fanciful imaginations of ordinary folk will reach readers of all ages.
