I think most of us here are familiar with "Spooky Tricks" by Ames & Wyler. A great primer for bizarre magic written for children.

But I ran across this title at a used bookstore a while back, and it's got a wonderful horror comic theme to it and also some bizarre presentational ideas that are actually quite clever.

Also, it's got some uncredited artwork by the legendary Steve Ditko as an added bonus.

I was trying to post a few images from the book, but the magic Café was not having it, regardless of the file size or type...

Looks like the Ditko art is from the "Ghosts of Doctor Graves" comics put out by Charlton in the 60s and 70s! Very neat find! Thanks for sharing!
