TOOK, by Mary Downing Hahn


The story: It’s bad enough that Daniel’s family moved to West Virginia, and even worse that his little sister seems to be losing it. But when Daniel hears the stories of Old Auntie and her half man, half razor-back hog companion–and when a girl who went missing 50 years turns back up and is still 7 years old–things get creepy beyond standing. When Erica follows the voices in her head and disappears in the woods, Daniel knows he has to do something. But if Old Auntie can kidnap a little girl, she can also kill a 7th grader. Daniel needs help fast…but where can he go to find it?


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Here’s a ghost story with just the right amount of shiver.  Mary Downing Hahn has lots of other scary stories, so if you’re a fan of the spooky stuff, you can finish this one and go back for more!
