Praise For Took: A Ghost Story…
—School Library Journal
"Hahn successfully reworks the recipe for those who still enjoy a good scare...a compelling addition to the Hahn collection of ghost stories."
"This creepy tale skillfully weaves in—and honors—the oral tradition of folklore, legends, and ghost stories."
—Horn Book Magazine
"Stalwart young readers who brave Daniel's telling are rewarded with a resolution that blends the mystical with the hopeful and creates community where once only fear and sorrow thrived."
