What really made these books amazing was Gammell's artwork. Not to belittle Helquist's talents, but they just don't compare to Gammell's well-known art in the aspects of their creepiness and pure display of horror.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, & Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones are all uniquely amazing in their own ways. All three books complete their purpose and one purpose only, to bring you chilling sensations of fear. These books are not a hard read and are exciting. You might not feel these stories are that scary, and some probably aren't, but if you think of yourself in the situation being described, then that changes your thoughts entirely. I loved these books and enjoyed some of the poems in them. It’s a fun read for anybody of any age and is three books in one, so you can’t go wrong there.
