Master Storytellers

Jacket copy from Scholastic Book Services' Master Storyteller Series' The Turn of the Screw and other stories by Henry James, 1966:
The Turn of the Screw, one of Henry James's most mystifying tales, poses a psychological puzzle:
• Are the two children innocent or corrupt?
• Do ghosts have evil power over them—or over their young governess?
These questions have intrigued readers for more than half a century.

In the four stories in this collection—The Turn of the Screw, The Pupil, The Tree of Knowledge, and The Figure in the Carpet—most of the action takes place within the minds of the characters. James draws his readers into this electric inner atmosphere, asking much of the imagination but giving great enjoyment in return.

Who the HELL wants Hell???
Nasty darkness,
eternal starvation,
and Satan lies like a Persian rug.

Only 2 realms after
our lifelong demise
(besides Purgatory
which A-L-L shall be released)...
and 1 of em aint too cool.
To win your immortal fight,
choose the Light, choose RITE.

Meet this ex-mortal Upstairs
for the most extra guhroovy,
party-hardy-reality-addiction 24/7
you DO NOT wanna miss, earthling.
Cya soon...
