This spine-tingling middle grade collection brings together Skeleton Man and The Return of Skeleton Man-two modern classics that will chill you to the bone. R.L. Stine, bestselling author of the Goosebumps series, raved: "This book gave me nightmares!"

Molly's father grew up on the Mohawk Reserve of Akwesasne, where he learned the best scary stories. One of her favorites was the legend of Skeleton Man, a gruesome tale about a man with a deadly, insatiable hunger. But ever since her parents mysteriously vanished, those spooky tales have started to feel all too real.

And things go from bad to worse for Molly when a stranger shows up one day and claims to be her great-uncle. A ghostly thin man she's never seen before. A man who reminds her an awful lot of the Skeleton Man. But he couldn't possibly be the same person from her father's tale . . . could he? It's up to Molly to uncover the truth about this fearsome figure and rescue her parents before it's too late.

This 2-in-1 collection is perfect for fans of R.L. Stine, Ellen Oh's Spirit Hunters series, Holly Black's Doll Bones, and any young reader who loves a good thrill.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for SKELETON MAN: "The legend is chilling-and the terror builds on every page. This book gave ME nightmares!" -- R. L. Stine, New York Times bestselling author of the Goosebumps and Fear Street series
"An incredibly scary story that will make hearts beat and brows sweat." -- School Library Journal (starred review)
"Bruchac vigorously cranks up the suspense, and pits a ghastly creature against a resourceful young heroine who draws both on courage and cultural tradition. A natural for under-the-blanket reading." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Bruchac gives full play to his talent for the creepy, and the introduction of bits of American Indian lore and story are smoothly and capably integrated. Reluctant as well as eager readers will relish this fast-paced supernatural chase." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Although it's steeped in Mohawk lore and tradition, Bruchac's story is contemporary both in its setting and its celebration of the enduring strength and courage of Native American women." -- ALA Booklist
"The mix of traditional and contemporary cultural references adds to the story's haunting appeal, and the quick pace and suspence will likely hold the interest of young readers." -- Publishers Weekly
Praise for THE RETURN OF SKELETON MAN: "Engaging and fast-paced sequel to a modern horror classic." -- School Library Journal
"The tale of the suspenseful faceoff between the heroine and her nemesis will surely keep readers turning pages." -- Publishers Weekly
