Loved these stories when I was little, love them now. Can be a bit scary for children under about 8. I say the two books in this series are steppnig stones for the Alvin Schwartz books so if your child (or you) loves scary/ghost stories but can't take the creepy (sometimes a bit disturbing) illustrations, these are for you.

I liked this book because scary stories are the best (oppinion) I am the kind of person who likes to be suprised by books. My personal favorite from this book was "knock knock knock."
