9780064401708: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: Collected from American Folklore

This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore is filled with tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright.

There is a story here for everyone -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney.

Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even scary songs -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark.

If You Dare!

About the Author:

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
