Scary Stories Treasury by Alvin SchwartzStill awesome!
These books are filled with short stories written down by the great Alvin Schwartz. These stories are comprised of myths, folklore and urban legends from all over the world. But beware dear reader, these stories may be too scary for you! 😱
Wonderfully written sets of little tales of horror. These stories were a beloved part of my childhood. I can still remember my friends and I staying up late at night sitting in a circle with a flashlight and these books and taking turns reading our favorite stories to each other. As we did our best to freak each other out so these stories remain ingrained in my memory. They bring back fond memories and are still delightful to read even as an adult.
Stephen Gammells horrifying illustrations still give me the creeps even as an adult. They are without a doubt the stuff that nightmares are made of.
I look forward to seeing what Guillermo del Toro can do to bring these horrorifying images to life on the big screen!
As any true lover of horror will tell you, these books are a must to add to your collection. And if you havent already read them, then you definitely should! Just remember to tell these scary stories... in the dark. 👻
