The skull

Klassen, Jon

The skull : a Tyrolean folktale

"This is an old story. It is about a girl named Otilla who runs away. It is also about a house in the woods, and a skull who lives there, and a secret the skull has, and the night that Otilla finds out what that secret is." --


Jon Klassen.

"The original retelling of this tale was found in A book of ghosts and goblins, written by Ruth Manning-Sanders and illustrated by Robin Jacques (New York: Dutton, 1969)."
