Title: Canadian Hauntings
Author: Michael Norman and Beth Scott
Ages: 10 and up


Whether you’re Canadian or not, this super-scary book will have you shaking in your boots. Authors Michael Norman and Beth Scott relate some seriously spooky (and 100% true!) stories about ghosts, house hauntings, poltergeists and possessions that have happened from coast to coast.


Excerpt From Canadian Hauntings

When the troubles began, Catherine Longpre was alone with her young son in her house by the river. Her husband, Georges Cloutier, was away working at a logging camp.


The horses wouldn't settle down when she tried to bring them in one evening. They shied away from her, jumping and bucking at her every approach. Exhausted, frustrated, and not a little mystified by her usually docile animals' tumultuous behaviour, Catherine paddled a small boat across the river to get help from her neighbour, Eva Duciaume.


The women finally succeeded in getting the horses corralled and went inside the Cloutiers' simple, rural home. Catherine sat down and lit a cigarette. As she snuffed out the match, her gaze shifted to the downstairs bedroom, which she could see through an open door. Her eyes widened. Stacked upon the bed was a pile of firewood normally kept by the stove. It was neatly placed, as if someone had mistaken the old bed with its feather mattress for the wood bin. Except no one other than Catherine and her young child, and now Eva, had been in the house all day. The wood hadn't been there an hour before.


Catherine told Eva that was it; she was truly frightened now and wasn't about to stay by herself in the house any longer.

    Love!! Love!! Love!! Your love will be the first person you think about when you wake up and the last person you think about before you go to sleep. When something good happens to you, this is the first person you want to tell. When something bad happens to you, you look to this person for support. Love is selfless. I was the most important person in my world until I met my girlfriend. Once I fell in love with her, her needs became much more important than my own. This is just how love is. Your needs always seem trivial in comparison to your significant other’s needs. You are never afraid to express your feelings in public I have this semi-bad habit of telling the world how in love I am with my girlfriend. When you’re truly in love, you want everyone to know. You are not bashful about your feelings by any means. When you like someone, there is a lot of holding back on how you feel. Falling in love is one of the most exciting, rewarding and scariest things you could ever do. Once you’re in love with someone, it’s hard to remember how you lived without him or her. Of course, you were alive before you met this person, but you really didn’t start “living” until the two of you met. Tell me on your own aspect, what did you really know about love..

    Okay, so you see this sticker here, yeah?:   [s:p/1jke] It's a cat in one of those grocery basket things. That's no big deal, right? EXCEPT IT IS A BIG DEAL! Considering the small size of that basket, and the size of the cat,   [s:p/1jko]   [s:p/1jkp]   [s:p/1jkn] the cat would fill up the entire basket by itself and be hanging out some. But there are groceries in the basket. That can't be possible.  How did the cat and the groceries fit into the basket so easily? Is there some sort of abyss at the bottom of the basket? I need answers.   [s:p/1mke]
