Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

A poltergeist that specializes in unscrewing bottle-caps...a couple who bring home a strange-looking little dog from Mexico, only to be told that it's a sewer rat...suddenly vanishing friends, relatives, and animals...a Texas girl raised by wolves- -yes, it's a new collection of horribilia: chillers, ghost stories, and urban legends, retold in an appropriately matter-of- fact way and illustrated by a master of the macabre. Schwartz gives most of the tales a modern setting, provides hints for storytellers, discusses variants, and--as in two previous collections--appends careful source notes and a good-sized bibliography. Gammell supplies a characteristic array of leering faces, slimy bones, and scrofulous, unidentifiable creatures. Perfect for reading alone or aloud in a dimly lit room. You first. (Folklore. 10-14) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Alvin Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explore 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 Ghosts! -- are just one part of his matchless folklore collection.

I grew up on these books and the biggest part of their allure and charm was the nightmarish and frightening artwork by Stephen Gammell. I am EXTREMELY disappointed that they are being re-drawn with a washed out and flowered up style. Please take my advice and buy the original, it is definitely worth it, I promise. I think it is sad that some children will never know the original drawings because parents are too uptight and make a big fuss about them. Too sad. They are SUPPOSED to be scary, you know?

I am taking the time to personally write a review on the horrid new editions of these books. What made this series so unique was the incredibly creepy and grotesquely exquisite artwork. This new edition has done away with the artwork that actually made your skin crawl (fancy a book on scary stories actually SCARING you) and has replaced them with blasphemously watered down artwork. I'm sure the new artist did his best and is talented, but you could not top the original artwork ever. This has obviously been censored so for the sensitive parents...you know...the ones that will let kids watch Family Guy on TV, but think that effectively scary images are the thing that will twist little Jimmy or Judy's mind.

Do not support this heresy on a classic. Buy the used originals. They are worth it.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful collection of urban legends and reworkings of regional ghost stories. The stand out of the collection is the story of "Harold." Even though this book is mostly for older kids, "Harold" will definitely leave even adults unnerved.You won't be able to look at a scarecrow without being spooked for weeks after reading the story. This book offers scary stories that aren't gross and don't have some sort of underlying agenda. It's just plain fun.

So I absolutely love this series, grew up with these stories, read them all the time, and I wanted to get the 3rd book to complete my set. But they sent me the new edition which they RUINED by taking out Gammell's artwork! Not the original which is shown in the picture. It's just... not the same. At all. Find the original instead if you want this book.

This book terrified me as a kid and it still does now at age 20. The scariest story is about "Harold" a giant doll that comes to life and kills somebody. It would make a great horror movie. The story about the girl raised by wolves is even cooler now because of a real life case I learned about in my Sociology class of a boy being found in the wilderness that is something like it. All in all this is an awesome book that still scares me and my friends today.

I have always been fascinated with all of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories collection, ever since I was a child. Stephen Gammell's drawings are really creepy. I purchased these books to hopefully share with my students. BEWARE though, some young children become frightened with some of the drawings! For ages 9 and up!

Be careful . . . Alvin Schwartz's last book in his trilogy of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark may be his most frightening yet. From a scarecrow that comes to life to a dog that's more than a little odd, Schwartz's book will make sure that you get a good shiver down your spine and perhaps a few hours less sleep.
