Alvin Schwartz is known for his more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explore everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds. Don't miss his other Scary Stories collections, including More Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark and Scary Stories 3.From AudioFile:
Whether recounting a spine-tingling tale or singing a ghoulish song or describing a morbid game to play in the dark with friends, master storyteller George S. Irving is obviously enjoying himself. Together with requisite eerie music, creaking sound effects and ghostly moans, Irving's insane laugh, hysterical scream and command of a wide range of voices make this haunting, humorous and most importantly scary. Irving uses dramatic pauses effectively in his mesmerizing baritone or his deep bass. Geared toward preteens, this excellent mixture of stories showcases Irving's finesse both as a living being and . . . as a dead one. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
