Another collection of spine-tinglers to read (and tell) in the dark!

Alvin Schwartz decided to call his last book in this series Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones, and it’s easy to see why! This fully illustrated collection of 20-plus fright fests features stories that are every bit as terrifying as the stories featured in the first two books! This macabre collection of nail-biters features: The Appointment, Just Delicious, Like Cat’s Eyes, Bess, Harold, The Dead Hand, Such Things Happen, Sam’s New Pet, The Red Spot, No, Thanks, The Trouble, Strangers, and Is Something Wrong?, among many horrifying others. Read them at a Halloween party, read them at a camp out, read them whenever you’re home alone, and feeling bored. Here’s a strong warning, however: If you choose that last option when you want to read this book, you should lock your doors and windows, turn on all of your lights, and double-check under your bed and in your closet. Between Alvin Schwartz’s brilliantly simple, ominous storytelling and Stephen Gammell’s gruesome drawings, you’ll be scared half to death... and trying to convince yourself that the strange sounds you hear are just products of your suddenly way too active imagination!


This book was in good condition so I am happy with it.

Great stories!

I have always been fascinated with all of Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories collection, ever since I was a child. Stephen Gammell's drawings are really creepy. I purchased these books to hopefully share with my students. BEWARE though, some young children become frightened with some of the drawings! For ages 9 and up!

great collection of scary stories for kids

I have collected all types of scary stories books throughout my childhood and this series ( all 3 books ) has to be the best collection ive ever read. I recently read this book again just to see how it would be 10 yrs later and see if the storys were still as good as i remembered and it was. I somehow lost this book between then n now and last time i read it i was about 10 or 11 so i got another copy and it's still as good as then. This book is excellent for children or teenagers and has some really classic scary stories in it and brilliant illustrations. Kids will find these illustrations very creepy and love the storys. I recomend this book to kids or any age group -its very fun to read and even has some creepy songs in some of the books.

classic scary tales

This is a wonderful collection of urban legends and reworkings of regional ghost stories. The stand out of the collection is the story of "Harold." Even though this book is mostly for older kids, "Harold" will definitely leave even adults unnerved.You won't be able to look at a scarecrow without being spooked for weeks after reading the story. This book offers scary stories that aren't gross and don't have some sort of underlying agenda. It's just plain fun.

Still Scary as Hell!

This book terrified me as a kid and it still does now at age 20. The scariest story is about "Harold" a giant doll that comes to life and kills somebody. It would make a great horror movie. The story about the girl raised by wolves is even cooler now because of a real life case I learned about in my Sociology class of a boy being found in the wilderness that is something like it. All in all this is an awesome book that still scares me and my friends today.

Stories that will keep you up all night

Be careful . . . Alvin Schwartz's last book in his trilogy of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark may be his most frightening yet. From a scarecrow that comes to life to a dog that's more than a little odd, Schwartz's book will make sure that you get a good shiver down your spine and perhaps a few hours less sleep.
