Description - Ghosts and Poltergeists by David West

Three infamous cases of bizarre and unexplained events are retold, including that of the most famous haunted house in the world; Amityville. Closing pages contain a 'Fact or Fiction?' section that examines the evidence for and against the existence of ghosts and poltergeists, and considers how the prevalence of computer-generated images is shaping our perception of the supernatural.

It is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for KS2 pupils within the framework of the National Literacy Strategy, and fits into KS2 English.
