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:

Narrator George S. Irving speaks, shouts, sings, and shrieks his way through Alvin Schwartz's classic collections of spooky folklore. Irving's performances have been around for years, but Harper has repackaged them for a new generation with striking holographic cover art. Schwartz's stories are meant to be told, and Irving knows how to get every last jump and shiver out of them. Whether he's singing "The Hearse Song," building to crescendo in cumulative tales like "Clinkity-Clink," or portraying a variety of accents, Irving is convincing. With such a performance, the musical effects sometimes seem unnecessary, but they don't detract from the production. The packaging states that the collection is "complete," although several stories from the first--and, arguably, best--volume are not included. Nonetheless, this makes an excellent choice for family listening. A.F. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
