Booklist Review of Parques de diversiones embrujados
This entry in the De Puntillas en lugares escalofriantes (Tiptoe into Scary Places) series hits kids where they live: amusement parks. Cantor recounts creepy, alleged tales of people hearing their names whispered in the air, seeing shadowy figures pass by, and suddenly coming face-to-face with a gigantic plaster eye. Specific parks are spotlighted. In Japan, a whole park was dedicated to the story of Gulliver’s Travels. Unfortunately, they built it near a “cursed and haunted forest”—and the park, so goes the rumor, was a failure from the start. High-interest photos are included on each page, along with a text box with a backstory of the relevant haunting. A map of the locations of the parks, online extensions, and a supernatural terminology glossary are provided at the end of the book.
