About the Author

Alvin Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explores everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds. His collections of scary stories—Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, Scary Stories 3, and two I Can Read books, In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories and Ghosts!—are just one part of his matchless folklore collection.


Brett Helquist's celebrated art has graced books from the charming Bedtime for Bear, which he also wrote, to the New York Times–bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket to the glorious picture book adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.

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.

The new artwork in this set is terrible. The drawings are cute instead of terrifying, they're not scary at all. The original artwork in the initial set was a huge part of what made the stories scary. The original artwork still creeps me out 30 years later. The drawings in this new set are just plain wrong, they don't belong in these books and kind of ruined it.

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.
