Tell Me a Scary Story...But Not Too Scary! with CD (Audio) (Byron Preiss Book) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everyone loves scary stories and award-winning comedy writer/director Carl Reiner invites readers to huddle close as he tells a young boy's tale of the mysterious house next door.

Something with red beams of light shooting from its eyes was coming down the basement stairs. It came closer and closer... the hair on the back of my neck was sticking straight out. I finally saw it- and it was alive!

As the story becomes spookier and spookier, Reiner pauses to ask "Shall we turn the page- or is it too scary?" That's for you to decide!

Parents and children can read along together as they listen to spooky sound effects and Carl Reiner's hilarious performance of Tell Me a Scary Story... on the accompanying CD.


Tell Me a Scary Story ... But Not Too Scary shares a boy's tale of the mysterious house next door.
