Mystery Stories

by John Townsend, Isobel Lundie, Isobel Lundie
Prepared to be scared with these 10 creepy mysteries about strange events, places, and creatures. They’re perfect for reading round the campfire or under the blanket with a flashlight.

Unsolved and unexplained tales have the power to spark our imaginations, chill our nerves, and send an icy shiver down our spines. And these 10 spooky, funny, and slightly gruesome stories will enthrall and excite young readers, introducing a new generation to the pleasures of the supernatural and science fiction. What happened to the man on the Dallas plane who got up to go to the bathroom—and was never seen again? Who (or what) was the man-eater who claimed at least 100 victims in the 1760s in France? Did a family on vacation in Canada actually glimpse Bigfoot? From “The Doomed Ship” to “Murder in the Mountains,” every scary tale will have you shaking and wondering what’s true . . . and what’s not!  

John Townsend worked as a teacher before becoming a full-time writer of children’s books. He specializes in fun, exciting nonfiction books for reluctant readers, as well as fast-paced fiction and “fiction with facts” books.
