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, where folklorist Alvin Schwartz offers up the most alarming collection of horror, dark revenge, and supernatural events of all time. Here is a selection of extraordinarily chilling tales along with spine-tingling illustrations by renowned artist Brett Helquist.

If I could describe in three words I'd say amazing,scary,funny there are some stories scary but,at the end of the book there is a chapter dedicated to funny stories, I highly recommend this book because after reading I read it over and,over again.

This book is absolutely terrifying and also goofy. this book has a lot of jump scares cause when you turn the page, you see scary stuff. -neji recommends
