Title: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
Author: Alvin Schwartz
What it's about: This book contains a range of short, scary stories aimed at a younger readership.
What I thought: This collection of spooky stories ranges from hokey to actually rather creepy, but it's the illustrations that really make the book. Those of us who read this as a child will remember being fascinated and horrified by the grotesque illustrations that accompany the eerie tales.
Overall: The illustrations and the nostalgia factor make this worth picking up.
