From the same author that brought us one of my childhood favorites, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, comes a retold collection of short, slightly-humorous-but-also-scary stories suitable for younger audiences (grades 1-3). My favorite tale is "The Green Ribbon." Recommended By Tiffany R., Powells.com
