Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
by Alvin Schwartz (Author) Stephen Gammell (Illustrator)
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, complete with spine-tingling illustrations that may just haunt your dreams . . .
