Halloween and witches go hand in hand during October, but the stories of Salem, Massachusetts are also a great talking point for 17th century history. This book guides young readers through the unbelievable events starting in 1692 as if they were an actual person during that time. After a thorough introduction to the time period and main players, the chapters outline the accusations, trials and culmination of the panic. It's an exciting read with a handy glossary at the back.
