Scary morbid silliness! These stories are made with the purpose of "jumping out" at the reader. Appropriate for children as young as 5-8, and older! Recommended By Michelle B., Powells.com
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

About the Author
Alvin Schwartz is known for a body of work of more than two dozen books of folklore for young readers that explore everything from wordplay and humor to tales and legends of all kinds. His collections of scary stories -- Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, Scary Stories 3, and two I Can Read Books, In A Dark, Dark Room and Ghosts! -- are just one part of his matchless folklore collection.
