Fears are never so stark, yet so undefined as they are when we are children. There are monsters lurking in every dark corner, in the closet, under the bed, ready to leap out the moment the light goes off. But not all the things that lurk under the bed and in the dark are only in their imaginations. Children lack many of the filters that adults have placed on themselves, so children have a heightened awareness of the world, normal and paranormal. Ursula Bienski delves deep into real children’s encounters with the supernatural, and shows us just what is out there, in there, under there, and what there is to be afraid of. Reconnect with the primal fears of childhood, and learn what you really saw.
