Sleepy Hollow’s most famous supernatural phenomenon is the ghost of the Headless Horseman, said to be a Hessian soldier who lost his head to a cannon ball during the Revolutionary War. The Horseman is seen most often riding by the church, where local historians say he was buried. He is believed to be always in search of his head. Ichabod is fascinated by this story, being especially interested (and prone to believe) in tales of the supernatural.


  • Glad it wasn’t too long

    Might be an unpopular opinion, but this was brutal. I found it tough to read but thankfully it only took a couple of lunch breaks to get through. Definitely picks up in the middle so if you start it, stick with it.

  • A Good, Slow Burn

    By Adam Sandler Himself
    If you’re looking for a quick chill down your spine, you’ve found the right story. Probably makes for a good campfire story if you live in the East or Midwest USA.

    The over all look and story of the book is great I love it but those words were so old I could barley read the book. I hate to look up a summary because I had no idea what was going on.

    It is a great book
  • It was ok, but very boring.😩😟😳

    By #CrazyPineapple100
    I just finished this book today, I thought it was so boring. All it was a narrator telling you about the place and people. I only read this book for a language arts assignment. I thought interesting but turns out it wasn't. I wouldn't suggest this book to anyone. It was a total snoozer.😴

    I loved this book you should read it
  • Worst book

    By VZUPO
    This is literally the worst book I've ever read. It makes no sense, it talks about the most random stuff I can't keep track of where I am without thinking of other stuff because this book is boring.
