This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore is filled with tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright. There is a story here for everyone -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney. Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even scary songs -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark. If You Dare!

I love this book so much, one story that really freaks me out is the hook it gives me chills.

I read this book when I was about 7, and I swear I didn't sleep normally until I was 15 or so.

Every so often if I'm alone in the house, out at night, etc., I'll remember stories from this book and get nervous.

Seriously, though. These are some of the best scary stories EVER.

Scary stories is a wonderful collection of tales to spook your friends.Some stories are what we use today like "the hook." Some of them you might not have heard of like "white wolf or" cold as clay." The stories in the book are very creative and interesting.Just like the illustrations. I could never think of stories like these. I should say that if you haven't read this book, you should.
