Editor reviews

Richard Young and his wife, Judy Dockrey Young, are professional storytellers who have published nine books as well as numerous recordings. Listening to these 14 ghost stories from the Southeast, one understands what vocal characteristics have made the couple so successful in their craft. Their voices effortlessly embody accents and moods, depending on the content of each story. The Youngs can be funny and spooky, dramatic and menacing. The couple tours the Midwest every year, visiting schools and storytelling festivals, consistently delivering narrative joy to enraptured children. In this performance of There's No Such Thing as Ghosts, it is easy to be enthralled by headless pirates, ghost ships, and mysterious Virginia dogs.
