Description

Few sounds are as chilling as the metal bars of a prison slamming shut. Often, criminals are locked up in cells with other murderers, thieves, and robberssometimes for years, sometimes for life. Yet what about being locked up with a ghost? Some people say that the souls of those who died in prison are unable to rest in peace. As a result, ghosts and other spirits are often reported to haunt jails and prisons around the world. Among the 11 prisons in this book, children will discover Alcatraz, the legendary prison that housed some of Americas most dangerous criminals, and which is said to still be home to some of their spirits; a Civil War prison where some people claim to hear the whispers of dead soldiers; and the Tower of London, where a headless queen haunts the hallways. The spooky photographs and chilling nonfiction text will keep children turning the pages to discover more creepy stories.
