Product Details


 “Josh Allen sets 13 creepy tales in a realm even redder in tooth and claw than the wilderness: middle school. Short and sharp, the stories in ‘Out to Get You’ mingle the ordinary with the supernatural in a way that will spook and gratify readers  . . .  Sarah J. Coleman’s illustrations add a touch of freakiness to quick-reading tales of ‘weirdness and woe.'”—The Wall Street Journal

“Is normal the real myth in this wondrously eerie world? . . . Tasty, bite-sized bizarreness for brave preteens.”—Kirkus Reviews

★ “A top-notch thrill-ride of creepy, crunchy horror. This collection belongs on every young horror shelf.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

★ “This haunting anthology will plunge young horror enthusiasts into their darkest dreams . . . Allen expertly weaves intricate, relatable details from the tween experience with elements of the supernatural to present readers with a baker’s dozen of chilling tales” —Booklist, Starred Review

“Allen offers up thirteen tales of kids either meeting or escaping their supernaturally designed dooms in a collection ripe for sharing around the campfire or at a sleepover. The most effective tales blend the direct storytelling style of a good folktale with just the right amount of dark humor . . . Grab this and a flashlight, and call up your spookiest voice for a Halloween read aloud.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
