Well-known for his spine-tingling, spooky stories, Edgar Allan Poe was also a master at writing haunting, deliciously macabre poems. Children will enjoy 13 of his verses--including two of Poe's most famous, "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee"--along with excerpts from eight of his most popular tales, such as "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Cask of Amontillado."
