Dark-Thirty: Southern Tales of the Supernatural
Patricia C. McKissack (au); Brian Pinkney (il). This volume includes 10 original stories, all with a foundation in African American history or culture. Some are straight ghost stories, many of which are wonderfully spooky & all of which have well-woven narratives. There is a tale from slavery times; a story set among the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters; & one from the 1940s segregated South. The title refers to that last half-hour before dark, when children must wind up their play & get safely home -- or else. These originally, short & ghostly stories, which come with brief historical introductions placing them in the American South, are grand for reading aloud. Dramatic B&W illustrations. A Newbery Honor Book & a winner of The Coretta Scott King Award.
