“Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” by Alvin Schwartz

I read this book back in 7th grade (if memory serves me right). I wanted to re-read this book after they made a movie based on this book and it was released back in August. The book was just as I remember it. This book is good for younger audiences who enjoy a good scare (on the back of the book it says this book is appropriate for ages 8 to 12 but that depends on whether the child is easily scared or not).

“Sure to provoke chills along the spine, this collection of short selections about witches and ghosts includes ‘jump’ stories as well as macabre songs, modern-day psychic tales, and frightening legends from the past.” -ALA Booklist
