Overview

It's scary how fast this book will fly off the shelves. Perfect for sleepovers, summer evenings by the campfire, or any time kids want a fun fright night, these 26 classic and newly illustrated ghost stories send chills down the spine. From terrifying tales of evil spirits to bloodcurdling accounts of revenge, there's something to tap into anyone's fears. Meet ghosts who haunt houses, and ones who return to reveal hidden murders. If you dare, walk with down lonely roads specters--including one whose body was burned to a crisp. Imagine what it would be like to see Mothman, a gigantic creature with no features except huge red eyes and large wings. Be afraid...be very afraid.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Anthologies of stories for sleepovers and camp-outs are always in big demand. Unfortunately, most of these 37 tales are unlikely to find an audience. The stories are divided into sections such as "Haunted Habitats," "Famous Phantoms," and "Messages from Beyond." Most are short, generally two pages, and all made their first appearance in earlier Sterling publications. Unlike some of those titles, Scary includes no introductions to the selections or narrators, or elements that might tie the tales together. The new version of "Valentino's Ring" is somewhat stilted and lacks the detail of the earlier story. With its undistinguished black-and-white block prints, this volume has a very unpolished look. Those looking for scary stories would more likely enjoy Alvin Schwartz's "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" books (HarperCollins), with pencil illustrations by Stephen Gammell.-Cheryl Ashton, Amherst Public Library, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
