Fergus and the Night-Demon

An Irish Ghost Story

By Jim Murphy, 1947-

Acclaimed nonfiction author Jim Murphy now turns his hand to spinning yarns. Fergus O’Mara, a resourceful Irish lad, is especially clever at avoiding work. On his way to an evening of fun, he encounters the dreaded Night-Demon. Fergus keeps on walking, but this demon means business, and our hero will have to work hard to get himself out of a “grave” situation.

With haunting humor and high spirits, Jim Murphy and John Manders have created a suspenseful tale that’s scary enough for a Halloween read-aloud and funny enough to be enjoyed at any time. Author’s note.
