About the Author:

Andrew Glass, also a twin, has illustrated many picture books for Clarion, including Ananse's Feast, The Bourbon Street Musicians, and Crabby Cratchitt. He lives in New York City with his wife.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-6-A disappointing collection of frightening tales. The stories lack the delicious creepiness that makes Alvin Schwartz's books so appealing; little (if any) original spark exists in this anthology, which seems to rehash themes seen over and over. The warning in the title story, for example, is a device that can be traced all the way back to the myth of Pandora's box. Other timeworn cliches include the ubiquitous "lost-in-the-woods" campfire tale, the "saved from death by a ghost" story, and the venerable tale of the "witch next door" (across the street in this case). There is definitely a young audience hungry for scary stories out there, but though some of them may read these selections, few will find them lively or gruesome enough to give this book a permanent place next to Alvin Schwartz's "Scary Stories" (HarperCollins) in their affections.
