Bridget Colontonio, October 25, 2007 (view all comments by Bridget Colontonio)
"A full moon in the sky, The clock strikes twelve...These are the Tales For The Midnight Hour". This is the ominous warning in the beginning of this creepy compilation of short stories for kids. Chock full of spooky stories to keep the little ones on the edge of their seats (and probably up all night with all the lights on). Seventeen stories altogether make up this frightening little book of torrid tales that some may even remember from their own childhood. On rainy days when I would pester my mother and complain that I was bored and had nothing to do, she would say "go read something", and off I went to make a fort out of her best linens with flashlight in hand, and my first choice of reads would be this little book of horrors. As a child, my favorite story was "A Free Place To Sleep", and all I can say is that after reading it, I certainly didn't get any sleep.
