Discover the Strange Science of ghosts

Do you believe in ghosts?

We all love hearing spine-tingling tales of ghostly beings in our midst. Over thousands of years, and in every part of the world, people claim to have come in contact with many different kinds of ghosts. Ghosts, the third book in the popular Strange Science series, looks at ghosts and apparitions found throughout history and examines the science behind this eerie phenomenon.

Award-winning author Sylvia Funston uses science to look into the age-old question of whether ghosts actually exist, delving into ghostly behaviors and our own beliefs about the power of omens, dreams, hallucinations and paranormal experiences. Ghosts also investigates the mysteries behind spooky encounters that sometimes seem to defy scientific explanation.

Along the way, readers will visit ghostly haunts and get the chance to meet the ghost of Catherine Howard (one of Henry VIII's unlucky wives), the ghost who met writer Mark Twain, and the Flying Dutchman ghost ship, among many others.

This lighthearted, entertaining and informative tour of an ever-popular subject is 100% guaranteed to thrill those who love a good ghost story (and who doesn't?). Fully illustrated with many amazing photos and spooky art that will leave the reader wondering - hmmm... could it be?, Ghosts also comes complete with a scary haunted house maze that tests your knowledge of ghost lore, quizzes to find out if you are in tune with other worlds and a ghostly index. Boo!
