Professional reviews

"An imaginary friend who won't leave. Teachers with cookies. Singing grandmothers. Magic gone horribly wrong. Creepy kids hanging out in the back of the library. It's the everyday and the mundane--things just around the corner--that can be scariest to kids. Each of the narrators for this fun, age-appropriate collection of creepy tales understands that kids know when you're faking or trying too hard, so all these stories are read matter-of-factly, with easy humor. It's clear the narrators are enjoying the stories. This collection is an excellent introduction to the pace, themes, and sounds of the horror genre. When you're hooked on the macabre, you're hooked. That's one good reason for starting early on the Guys Read series. B.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
