    " I know everyone thinks they know what "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is about, but I challenge you to read it, really read it, as an adult, and see what you get out of it. You'll find a variety of interpretations of what Irving meant to convey, and some of these may be unexpected. There are many other great stories in this collection, including "Westminster Abbey." "

    " Not the best retelling of the story, but it is good for younger readers and has some good information, discussion questions and writing prompts in the back. "

    " I would pick and choose which stories and essays to read - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was a great one, and there were some essays at the beginning that were great, but after a while, I grew tired of the language and style. Most of his essays, language excluded, actually fit modern society in some way; others like "Traits of Indian Character" seem antiquated but at times are an interesting read about colonial culture. "

    " I read this during the Halloween season a couple of years ago and loved it. The old animated cartoon narrated by Bing Crosby is a close adaptation of the original story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilary | 12/14/2013

    " Love the mix of humor and thriller. Ichabod Crane is a really fun character to read about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/5/2013

    " I only read "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" which is about 30 pages. It was amazing. I bookmarked several places where the descriptions and language are just incredible!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don K | 11/21/2013

    " These stories are just as enjoyable now, as they were when I was young. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayme | 11/21/2013

    " We read this in my senior year in my Legends and Lore class and it's a great book, but the wording can be a bit challenging, I recommend the movie with Johnny Depp as well "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 11/20/2013

    " Always wanted to read this classic tale of Sleepy Hollow and Ichabod Crane and it didn't disappoint except that it is just too short. Loved it though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anja | 11/18/2013

    " A cute little novella about the original Ichabod Chrane and the headless rider :) It has its flaws, but it was fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 10/24/2013

    " Just finished rereading the story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" in honor of the season :) It really shows Irving's talent for both humor and suspense "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike McArtor | 10/10/2013

    " In the time it takes you to read this you could make yourself a pot of tea, toast some jam, and watch the Disney animated version of the tale. You would find your time better spent in that endeavor, as this is one of those very rare stories improved upon by Disney. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamara | 8/21/2013

    " Really?! That's it?! So not impressed. "

    " Honestly, this story was a bit boring for me. It took forever to get going and when it finally did, not much really happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 4/17/2013

    " Good little book, saw the film (with Johnny Depp) before hand and this is different but in a good way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 1/1/2013

    " I think that is story was good. I lliked it because I find the main character quite funny. My favorite part was when they described him riding a horse and Mr. Weise,my teacher, drew a funny picture. I see a little bit of myself in him because I always creep myself by reading weird/scary stories "

    " Who knew Americans could write. I think I enjoyed the vignettes of English life the most. Some of the stories did not interest me. Even in the telling of a not so interesting story I found joy. "

About the Author
Author Washington Irving

Washinton Irving (1783–1859), American essayist, novelist, and historian, was born in New York to a wealthy merchant. He studied law, but because of his delicate health, his family sent him on a tour of Europe, where he collected material later used in his stories and essays. The first American author to achieve international fame, his literary career served in many ways to consolidate the cultures of the United States and Europe.
