Review


"I think the book is quite creepy. I loved all of the stories. If I had to pick a favorite, I would pick the third one. I still love them all." 5-Stars --Ella, iBook Review


"This book was totally AWESOME!!! The best part was the last story, about the hobgoblin. It was scary, but cool or gross, something like that." 5-Stars --A Kids Review

"It was a really good book, not too scary. It has a lot of supporting details." 5-Stars --The Girl from Brewster

If you are looking for some spooky stories for children that are not too scary you should check out this book. Put this on your kindle to keep your kids entertained on long car rides and during other boring times.

It is a total of about 60 pages and is comprised of various spooky stories featuring monsters, zombies, aliens and more. Below I will give a spoiler free description of the stories and my general impression of them.

No Way Out
This is the first short story in the book and my least favorite. I don't know how much children would enjoy it. The characters are pretty annoying, the story was irritating and I didn't like the ending. I really didn't like the bit about the cat. I think if you read this story to your child they will bug you to find out how it ends because what happens to the characters in the end isn't clear. I'm sure the ending was designed to be scary and dramatic but I don't think kids will see it that way. They'll just want to know what happens next. This story was definitely skip-able but the rest of the book was actually really good.

The Price of Friendship
This is one of my favorite short stories in this collection. Its a pretty interesting twist on making deals with demons that I think kids would find entertaining. It makes for a fun quick read and isn't scary so it could be told as a bedtime story.

Hobgoblin Horror
This story was one of the scarier of the collection. Being a monster story this probably wouldn't be the best one to read to a small child before bed. It's about a creature that will kill you if you see it. It's slightly gory. This is a pretty entertaining read that I think many kids would like.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book of short horror stories. They were fantastical and fun with just enough gore for me to be fully entertained for an hour. I've read a couple collections by M.J. Ware and have really liked them. There are definitely some gruesome aspects so if you have a weak stomach you may not enjoy these.

This book has a series of short stories that will leave you with a taste for more. I kinda wish there were more stories to the collection by the author. The window frame for the story compositions are executed rather rapidly with just barely enough details to get the reader into a new world of reading. It kind of makes the reader desire more of a story plot. The stories compositions grab and captivate the reader's attention steadily after the introduction is handled. The ending to each tale is quite unique in style of conclusions. The choice of wording isn't too extreme nor is it extremely basic. It should be a good solid read for the average reader. Due to some graphic content I would recommend a more mature audience to look into this reading. I finished the book in one sitting within an hour or so.It's a decent book for the light heart horror category readers. I received this digital copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I really liked the book. The three stories it as are very short so the book itself is only 20 pages or so long. Took me about ten or fifteen minuets to read all of it. The stories are really interesting and the horror is a different kind of horror and that I really like. I don't like 'jump scares'. They're too predictable but this book doesn't have that. It has the despair and bleakness that you can feel in your gut and personally, to me, that is a lot scarier than jump scares. I like different kinds of horror that can scare you without going 'boo!' Basically. This book is great but I rated it 4/5 because of how small it is. The stories at the length they are, are perfect. I just wished there were more stories to it but I'm not going to really complain. Still very good. I look forward to reading more like this.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion and review.

Cute book to read. My daughter enjoyed it a lot and she is very critical when it comes to books that claim to be scary. She finished this book in a day and said that it was better than some of the other scary books out there. she said that this is a book that she will gladly pick up and read again and that she looks forward to letting her friends read this book as well. This is the opinion of a 13 year old girl. We received this book at a discounted rate in exchange for our honest unbiased review

Admittedly, I did not read the preview included in this small collection, so I am rating the short stories alone. I downloaded this book as an adult who enjoys the occasional Goosebumps nostalgia trip. Scary stories for kids are often more fun than the books and films for adults, since they rarely include such sexist and gory elements. The stories in this collection were a good medium between the gorier adult stories and the completely inane, silly nonsense offered by Goosebumps. At times, I almost felt they might be going a bit far (or perhaps a bit over the average child's head, as with one elderly character's slightly racist/sexist remarks), but then I realized . . . the stories I wrote and enjoyed as a child were much, much bloodier and grittier than these. With that in mind, I think these stories are the sort of spooky tales an older child would definitely enjoy.
