Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book presents a collection of scary stories by a variety of authors. The volume features modern tales such as "The Kit-Bag," where the main character, Johnson, is haunted by the spirit of a dead man who is looking for his possessions that have come under Johnson's care. In "Here There Be Tygers," a tiger that is lurking in the boys' restroom at school terrorizes young Charles. In addition to the modern tales, classics are also included in this compilation. In Edgar Allan Poe's "The Cask of Amontillado," Fortunato is entombed in the wall of his friend's house. Harry Horse's black-and-white illustrations add to the spookiness of the stories. While the book targets middle school students, readers of various ages will find the stories entertaining. Younger readers will enjoy the simpler stories, but parents and teachers should be warned that the more graphic tales might frighten them. The volume also includes several stories that are complex enough to thrill adult readers. 2003, Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 9 to 14.
