The Scary Stories trio was one of the infamous books at my elementary school s library everyone wanted to read them and for good reason they re fun spooky and the illustrations are both beautiful and downright terrifying The stories are a collection of folktales ghost stories and campfire stories meant to be read aloud with a group of friends However they re perfectly scary even if you re just reading them to yourself on a rainy afternoon The stories within these three books range from silly and cheesy to unsettling and scary especially for a book aimed at younger readers But I highly recommend all three books for younger and older readers alike I would also like to note that the new edition of these books with different illustrations should be skipped they have none of the flavor and atmosphere of the originals so get a copy of the original drawings you won t regret it 355Better than the second but nowhere near as good as the first This third volume of the series felt much grown up and interesting compared to the other two The stories were a lot of fun and I loved the urban legends especially I also appreciated the research notes as they give background information about the work of the author Now I want to see the movie Has anyone seen it and can recommend 45 stars YES YES YESFinally I got the chance to read the final set of stories from Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell s controversial yet popular series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark called Scary Stories 3 More Tales to Chill Your Bones In celebration of Halloween I have decided to revisit this little gem of a series again and I was seriously not disappointedThis book mostly has
