Excerpts from reviews of earlier-released audiocassette version: 'You'll hear old favorites such as Tailypo and Sop Doll, a Victorian version of the vanishing hitchiker story. There is the deliciously ghoulish Sam'l featuring slurping sound effects of the graveyard worm and a touching and eerie Civil War story...There is a nice mix of stories, making it of interest to both children (grade 3+) and adults. The Second Story Review, 9/96. 'Hamilton's vocal special effects are excellent. Her voice changes for different characters bring them to life. Her 'special sounds'(animals, groans, screeches, etc.) are spooky and fun. . . This recording will be in demand in school and public libraries, especially at Halloween.' School Library Journal, 9/96.
