Stay away from this set and find a copy of the originals!
Go out of your way to buy the real, authentic "Scary Stories" with Gammell's classic illustrations, and avoid this horrible update like the plague. Maybe if enough people voice their displeasure the publishers will bring back the classic "Scary Stories" and quit trying to ruin a classic with their needless tampering.
p.s. I need to add that my review is of the Treasury with the original artwork. I had no idea that a newer edition had the weak-sauce art added. When I saw those new drawings it was clear they have ruined the book. My family has the trilogy with all the original, heart stopping, nightmare inducing drawings that scarred me for life as a boy. Two thumbs way up for the original artist! If you get this book, get the original art! How will you tell? You'll know because you'll be nauseous.

Even though it isn't the original artwork, but having these old classic stories from when I was kid again makes my October nights before bed even scarier ;)Published 3 hours ago by Shadow87
My husband had never read these books before. I had a lot of fond memories of the super spooky images that went along with the stories. Read morePublished 5 days ago by MoneRojas
Loved these books as a child! Bought these for my son's cub scout camping trip. This collection has more toned down illustrations and were a huge hit with the boys!Published 6 days ago by Stephanie
I'd give this zero if I could. Without the original illustrations by Stephen Gammel, this is nothing more than garbage. Seek out the original editions.Published 6 days ago by Brandon Dinklage
