California's folklore is kept alive in these expert retellings by master storyteller S. E. Scholosser, and in artist Paul Hoffman's evocative illustrations.
S. E. Schlosser has been telling stories since she was a child, when games of "let's pretend" quickly built themselves into full-length stories. A graduate of the Institute of Children's Literature and Rutgers University, she also created and maintains the Web site AmericanFolklore.net, where she shares a wealth of stories from all fifty states, some dating back to the origins of America. She is also the author of Globe Pequot's Spooky New England, Spooky New York, Spooky South, and Spooky Southwest. She lives in Arizona. Paul G. Hoffman trained in painting and printmaking, with his first extensive illustration work on assignment in Egypt, drawing ancient wall reliefs for the University of Chicago. His work graces books of many genres--children's titles, textbooks, short story collections, natural history volumes, and numerous cookbooks. For the Spooky series he employed a scratchboard technique and an active imagination.He lives in Massachusetts.
