Scary stories: everybody loves to hear them, and everybody loves to tell them. They are popular for sharing in many settings―campouts, sleepovers, classroom or youth-group gatherings―as well as just plain fun to read. Selected especially for appeal to upper-elementary and middle-school students, each story has been crafted through multiple performances in school and library settings. Stories include traditional folktales, local legends, and original stories; some have historical settings and some are set in current times. All are sure to engage the most reluctant reader.

Grade 4–8—Each of these 20 chilling tales is meant to be told out loud and includes author notes about how to maximize the spooky effect. Middle schoolers will relish reading and sharing these tales, hoping to creep each other out. While some of the stories are spookier than others, this is still a worthwhile addition for fans of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (HarperCollins, 1986) and Robert D. San Souci's Short and Shivery (Random, 2001). The book also deserves a place in professional storytelling collections.—Esther Keller, I.S. 278, Marine Park, NY
