“I picked up this book because I was in the mood for some scary and haunting tales. Well I have to say while the stories were not that scary. My definition of scary is something that gives you chills, makes you look over your shoulder a few times, and even having you tuck your blanket up to your chin when you go to bed. A book or story does not have to have all three criteria’s to make me happy but if it does than it is a keeper.
So this is one of the reasons I could not give this book five stars. Another reason was because while the stories were short, quick, and not anything I have read, I found myself having a little bit of a hard time getting into all of the stories. However for the most part I did enjoy the stories. I was not expecting illustrations so that was a nice surprise. In fact the few pictures that were in this book were well done and were the creepy parts of this collection. If you are looking for something different to read than you might check out this collection of stories.
