Christmas Ghost Stories

Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once as much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus. Now beloved cartoonist Seth revitalizes the tradition designing and illustrating each ghost story book in his own inimitable way. Trimmed to fit the coziest stocking, they’re perfect gifts for those who want a bit of extra Christmas chill.
