The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Book/Movie Review

Rating: 5-- Can't go wrong with this short scary story.

Hi everyone! (see another discussion about TLSH at Linked in Hollywood)

I thoroughly enjoyed this short story by Washington Irving.  Not only is the story creative and interesting, but the style and language is elegant and engaging.  For younger children, I would say it requires advanced comprehension and vocabulary skills as the terms and phrases are early American.  The story was first published in 1820 after all.
