This exciting collection stars the legendary Rip Van Winkle, who takes a nap under a shady tree and awakens after twenty years! You'll also meet, among others, Ichabod Crane, who comes to a gruesome end at the hands of the Headless Horseman of Sleep Hollow . . . .

The legendary enchantment of Rip Van Winkle in the Kaatskill Mountains; the gruesome end of Ichabod Crane, who met the headless horseman of Sleepy Hollow; the spectre bridegroom who turned out to be happily substantial; and, the pride of an English village and the come-uppance of the over-zealous Mountjoy - these witty, perceptive and captivating tales range from fantasy to romance.
