Overview

More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz, Brett Helquist

All those who enjoyed shuddering their way through Alvin Schwartz's first volume of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark will find a satisfyingly spooky sequel in this new collection of the macabre, the funny, and the fantastic. Is it possible to die — and not know it? What if a person is buried too soon? What happens to a thief foolish enough to rob a corpse, or to a murderer whose victim returns from the grave? Read about these terrifying predicaments as well as what happens when practical jokes produce gruesome consequences and initiations go awry. Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories — and even a scary song — all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark. If You Dare!

I got this book when I was a child (like 20ish years ago) I used to read it to my younger siblings and it a;ways scared the bajebers out of us, I forgot what the title was until recently and cannot wait to add it to my scary stories collection now that i'm an adult and as soon as my kids are ready and willing to be scared, I will def be reading this to them. :-D
