** The famous cover of ''The Curse of Camp Cold Lake'' features a red-eyed skull with no nose rising out of the water. This creature never shows up in the book, and instead the antagonist is a ghost girl who, despite being partly transparent, is normal enough that Sarah doesn't immediately realize she's even a ghost.

** ''The Haunted School''. [[spoiler: The ending implies that Tommy and the kids in his class will be sent to Greyworld by Mr. Chameleon and trapped like the 1947 class was. However, Thalia can just as easily open another doorway into the color world using her lipstick if it still has its color by the time Tommy and the others show up. And even if it doesn't, Tommy can most likely burn open a doorway using his lighter.
