Everyone loves scary stories, but no one loves them more than children. Storytellers Richard and Judy Young gathered these stories from the most discerning critics the kids themselves. These are the tales kids tell most often and most often ask to be told. They come from the Ozark and Appalachian mountains, Hawaii, the British Isles, Laos, Cambodia, Japan, and the Chinook Indian tradition.

About the Author:

Richard Alan Young "and Judy Dockrey Young "grew up in Texas and Oklahoma, respectively, Both have been teachers and now work as storytellers at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. Their other books for young readers include The Scary Story Reader, "for ages 10 to 15 (page 47).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-- The Youngs have collected 23 scary (and not so scary) stories for classrooms, storytelling settings, sleepovers, and read-aloud sessions. Many of the tales will sound familiar, but may not have been seen in written form before. Others are old standards such as "The Golem," " The Hobbyahs," "Wylie and the Hairy Man," and "The Red Velvet Ribbon." Still others are new and will be sure crowd pleasers. Each yarn is one to four pages in length--very lean--giving just enough detail to hold readers' attention. At the beginning of each story, a symbol rates its age level and appropriate audience. Collection notes and a pronunciation guide are included; both are useful for searching for similar tales and points of origin. The pen-and-ink illustrations are not particularly distinguished. A book that will serve its purpose well, especially if used in conjunction with other spooky story collections. --Molly Kinney, North Dade Regional Library, Miami, FL
