When this eagerly
awaited sequel to the highly popular "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark"
hit the shelves in 1984, it was an immediate success. Little did the public
realize... there was a third book in the works. It seemed that Alvin Schwartz
and Stephen Gammell were unstoppable.
As a child,
when I read this compilation of folklore, I questioned my ability to ever
have a peaceful night sleep again. With stories ranging from a butcher
grinding up his wife and burying her under a rock in the back yard to a
young bride being hopelessly locked in a chest only to die of starvation,
it's in the child's best interest to proceed with caution. But we must
keep in mind that these stories are great for adults also! So don't judge
this series because they are "children's books."
To this day
I still pull this series out to reflect on my younger years and feel the
unique chills that this series conjures up.
A true masterpiece
that's a must-have for horror fans regardless of age!
