I read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow for Dewey’s 24 Hour Marathon and at around 70 ebook pages was a nice, short read.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is told in a nostalgic, folk tale tone, I felt like I was a little kid again at story time anticipating what was going to happen next. It was the perfect story for the beautiful Fall day I read it on before heading off to the pumpkin farm with my family.
The ending leaves readers hanging as to what exactly happened to poor Ichabod Crane, but after some time I grew to appreciate how this added an extra layer of mystery to the story.
When I was kid, I always looked forward to watching the Disney cartoon of the story, but this was my first time reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The book has wonderful atmosphere, spooky imagery and subtle humour. I highly recommend reading it around Halloween when the leaves are falling and the air is beginning to chill.
