Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Storytellers know — just as they have for hundreds and hundreds of years — that everyone enjoys a good, scary story!

Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories 3 joins his other popular collections of scary folklore, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, to give readers spooky, funny and fantastic tales guaranteed to raise goose bumps.

Who is the Wolf girl? Why is a hearse filled with men with yellow glowing eyes? Can a nightmare become reality? How do you avoid an appointment with Death?

Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozens scary stories — and even a scary song — all just right for reading along or for telling aloud in the dark..

Synopsis:

The dark is alive with sounds: a creak, a thump, a moan--or is it just the wind? Filled with chilling shrieks and bloodcurdling laughter, Schwartz's new collection of 25 terrifying tales filled with stories of swamp creatures, strange dreams that come true, and even children raised by wild animals. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Buckeye Children’ s Book Award (Ohio)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 109-113).

We have a copy in our school library that has been checked out 133 times. All these scary story collections are literally loved to death by our students! Buy one and donate it to a middle school library.

I read this book many times in my elementary school, and I couldn't put it down. When I was at Funfest 2004, the local festival in my hometown, I saw it for sale. I picked it up and noticed that my name was still in it. It is currently next to me while I work on my banned books project for an English class.
