This story takes place in a town called Sleepy Hollow. There was a guy that lost his head in the war. When he came out of the hospital he was looking for a head. He was known to the people in town as the "Headless Horseman" because he killed a lot of innocent people for revenge. He got on his horse and then he chased them, then he would chop off their heads. Finally he killed a guy that was a teacher for his head. He went to the hospital and they sewed on the head for him. He felt very happy. Then there was no more damage in the town. He got married to a beautiful lady and then they lived happily ever after

This was an interesting book because there was a lot of danger. I would never like to live in Sleepy Hollow. This book is a horror story but I liked it anyway.

This is a cool story. I have been reading this book since I was in the second grade. I like when the Horseman chops off the heads. I recommend this book to people that like scary stories.
