All those who enjoyed shuddering their way through Alvin Schwartz's first volume of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark will find a satisfyingly spooky sequel in this new collection of the macabre, the funny, and the fantastic.
Is it possible to die -- and not know it? What if a person is buried too soon? What happens to a thief foolish enough to rob a corpse, or to a murderer whose victim returns from the grave? Read about these terrifying predicaments as well as what happens when practical jokes produce gruesome consequences and initiations go awry.
Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even a scary song -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark.If You Dare!

Mr. Gammell lives with his wife in St. Paul, Minnesota.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
