There is magic and mystery surrounding the vale of Sleepy Hollow. It is home to a host of ghostly sounds and goblin spectres, none more infamous than the Headless Horseman. This figure rides out in the witching hour of night. If one is not careful, a traveller can lose everything in one evening – their wits, their heart, their head. The foolish school teacher, Ichabod Crane, is besotted with the lovely Katrina Van Tassel. Surely there can be nothing to stand in the way of his designs on her fortune. Sadly for him, imagination is a dangerous thing in Sleepy Hollow, and Katrina is in the sights of another who claims to have bettered the Horseman in a race. Which suitor will succeed and which is destined to become part of Sleepy Hollow’s legend forevermore? Gently adapted for children, this title also includes Irving’s celebrated short story ‘Rip Van Winkle’.
