Ghoulies, ghosties, and long-leggedy beasties inhabit these 30 chilling tales gathered from around the world—perfect for fans of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark! Creepy classic and contemporary stories from Australia, Germany, India, El Salvador, and elsewhere–including a healthy helping of American apparitions–will keep readers and listeners scared stiff. Do you dare walk down the lane where “Crooker Waits”? Or would you rather shake “The Hairy Hands”? Twenty eerie illustrations highlight this companion to Robert D. San Souci’s earlier collections of scary stories, which School Library Journal called “an absolute delight. . . . Young readers will gobble up these thirty thrilling snacks and beg for more.” Savor this supernatural treat for spine-tingling fun!
Robert D. San Souci is the award-winning author of many popular books for young readers, including the Short & Shivery books, and the quartet of picture books about Arthurian legends, Young Merlin, Young Guinevere, Young Lancelot, and Young Arthur.
"The brief tales are scary enough to satisfy anyone attending a slumber party or sitting around a campfire; the source notes at the end of the volume add an educational element." —The Horn Book Magazine
