The Book Farm, Inc. :: Nonfiction Books :: Creepy Castles (08) / Scary Places

Creepy Castles (08) / Scary Places
Creepy Castles (08) / Scary Places 
Ancient places such as castles are filled with histories, sometimes bloody and gruesome, but always fascinating. And the 11 dark places explored in this title are sure to chill young readers' imaginations. For example, at Chillingham Castle in England, they'll meet John Sage, who tortured up to 50 prisoners a week. He had a tilted floor in his torture chamber, so the victims' blood could easily drain away. John boiled some prisoners in pots and locked others away in cages with starving rats. This nonfiction narrative of evil deeds and unfortunate incidents in ancient structures, all of which are said to be haunted, will engage even the most reluctant readers. Creepy Castles is part of Bearport's Scary Places series.
~We’re in the midst of a supernatural nonfiction book rush, but few are as genuinely hair-raising as the Scary Places series. As with the publisher’s similarly creepy HorrorScapes series, the high-interest text is ideal for reluctant readers, with each two-page spread focusing on a single horrifying habitat. While not especially sophisticated, the layout is nonetheless effective, with cunning integration of stock art, photographs, period illustrations, gritty textures, and—scarier than anything else—the prevalent use of grainy snapshots showing the interiors of various abandoned buildings and cellars. Cursed Grounds digs deep for some strange ones: Utah’s Highway 191, Australia’s Babinda Creek, and even Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Monstrous Morgues of the Past turns up some stories that will have young readers agape: the Parisian morgue that became a tourist sensation, the haunted lab where 1,400 brains of the mentally ill were kept in jars, the shipwreck disaster that haunted Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Studios. Shuttered Horror Hospitals is rife with evil sanitoriums, plus one particularly nasty tale of the 160,000 who died from leprosy on an island near Venice, Italy. Boxed factoids (or folklore) ratchet up the thrills throughout, and a map and glossary cap off the fine back matter.
