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

I’ve finished the next book in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series. I had originally read these books back in the 7th grade. I remember checking them out from the library in school. Good book for readers ages 8 to 12 if the child doesn’t scare easily.

“Guaranteed to make your teeth chatter and your spine tingle. The stories are short and perfect for telling aloud. Gammell’s eerie drawings are excellent.” – School Library Journal (starred review)

Also, on a side note, I went to the bookstore yesterday and picked up another book to add to my list of books to be read…

Scary Stories…..

This was another childhood favorite of mine. I believe I read these when I was in the 7th grade. It includes “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark”, “More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” and “Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones”, all written by Alvin Schwartz. I remember checking each one out from the library at my school and reading them. I did enjoy reading these books. I was old enough to know that the stuff in the books wasn’t real, however, they are good enough books to keep you on the edge of your seat. I have seen this at my local bookstore and I’ve thought about re-reading these.

Now, they’ve made a movie based on the stories from these books and it’ll be released in the United States on August 9th of this year (just in a couple of weeks). I would like to see the movie on opening weekend but I don’t know if my schedule at work will allow me to. I may just have to go see it on a day off.
