Read by Chip.

Has the summer heat become unbearable? Perhaps you need to cool down with this blood-chilling reading of Irving’s classic tale of a ghostly rider and a meek schoolmaster. Chip’s reading humorously introduces you to the idyllic New England countryside and Ichabod Crane’s attempts to woo the lovely Katrina Van Tassel away from his rival “Brom Bones” Van Brunt. When Ichabod is confronted with a shadowy apparition, Chip’s superb narration will raise goosebumps no matter how hot the weather.
