This book is composed of two stories.I like "Rip Van Winkle." One day Rip and his dog,Wolf walked to the mountains and stayed there all day. They met old men. The men were drinking without talking. It was late in the evening but Rip stayed with the men and slept. He opened his eyes and walked down the mountain to his town. But there were people who he don't know. There were not his family, friends, his house. What happened to him? And where were his family, friends, his house? This book is easy to read but very interesting. Would you read this book?

This book incldes two stories. The story of Rip Van Winkle is Rip meets strange elderly persons in the mountain. Where did they come by whom?
And The Legend and Sleepy Hollow, the main character Ichabod who is teacher. Oneday, he heard the rumor that a man the neck is not in "Sleepy Hollow" appears...
Both of story is little scary.But they are little short.
I wanted more story. ( )
