Grade 4–8—Each of these 20 chilling tales is meant to be told out loud and includes author notes about how to maximize the spooky effect. Middle schoolers will relish reading and sharing these tales, hoping to creep each other out. While some of the stories are spookier than others, this is still a worthwhile addition for fans of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
(HarperCollins, 1986) and Robert D. San Souci's Short and Shivery
(Random, 2001). The book also deserves a place in professional storytelling collections.—Esther Keller, I.S. 278, Marine Park, NY
