The Monkey's Paw

The Monkey's Paw Summary

It’s a dark brooding tale which promises from the start that the light you see at the end of the tunnel is actually an oncoming train. Mr and Mrs White of Laburnum Villas step out toward that light by taking up the three wishes granted to the owner of the Monkey’s Paw. Terrible things have happened to previous owners of this artifact but surely the Whites will fare better than those who have gone before…

Book Reviews


“The Monkey’s Paw”5 star

This book is wonderful to people who like ghostly, and even a spine chilling sensation! I read this book when I was in the 7th grade and now I’m in the 9th grade and I still remember this book. It’s not recommended for people who are afraid of dead things or people (like babies or toddlers). But people that are in middle school 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. It is an AMAZING book! Some points in the book I was like😱😱!!55

This book was terrible and old fashioned. I didn't understand one word and I am a civilized writer. What was this supposed to be black magic, or just a lady screaming for her kid. This story was also left in the middle. Did the husband kill his kid again? What was he afraid of?15
