“This new edition is handsome and accessible; now young readers have a choice of how scared they want to be—just a little, or a whole lot. ” (Horn Book Magazine)
From the Back Cover
Are you brave enough for Scary Stories?
Some boys and girls were at a party one night. There was a graveyard down the street, and they were talking about how scary it was.
"Don't ever stand on a grave after dark," one of the boys said. "The person inside will grab you."
"A grave doesn't scare me," said one of the girls. "I'll do it right now. . . ."
Welcome to the macabre world of Scary Stories. Inside, you'll find alarming tales of horror, dark revenge, and the supernatural, with spine-tingling illustrations by renowned artist Brett Helquist.

The new illustrations have neither the terror nor the nostalgia that the originals by Stephen Gammell had.
The choice to remove such unique and memorable artwork in favor of something so plain and unremarkable is baffling, particularly after 30 years of the originals being printed.
These might be better toned down for your (boring) children, but if you were hoping to reminisce about the terrors of your childhood, you'll have to look elsewhere.
Great purchase, great memories. I recommend it, especially for those who grew up with these books!
Also, I bought a used copy to make sure that I got the version with the original drawings. There is a newer version out there that doesn't have Stephen Gammell's work in it, so beware about that if you're buying it for the art work!
As a side: my copy came as an original in nearly mint condition. Luck.
She says the drawings are too scary.
One day she'll appreciate them....
I hope to read these to my kids one day and hopefully they'll enjoy them just as much.
