Author Biography: Alvin Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explore everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Halloween is the biggest kid holiday there is! But for babies and toddlers, it can be terrifying. Older kids can still have chills and thrills, but this book will also give their younger brothers and sisters the treat of feeling safe. Schwartz, one of the greatest ghost story tellers in America, retold stories for young children. For beginning readers, Ghosts! is out in paperback too. These seven ghost stories are funny, spooky, easy to read, and tell a good tale.
