As a child in public elementary school, I enjoyed not so much reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark but the feeling of being in with other children who had read the book, which was already something of a cult classic. After a long gap at looking at the stories, we brought them out for a curious, Halloween-loving eight year old who insisted she didn't want to wait another year or two to read them. She strongly disliked and was confused about what she read. Possibly because she's never been to summer camp nor experienced the type of sleepover where kids would try to frighten each other, I had to explain what a scary campfire story is and why it's told. The concept of that was so strange to her, we had to go over it for weeks after putting away the book.

Scary Stories does provide an introduction to this type of storytelling, so we made up our own. At the same time, though, we worked through her discovery that both of us are deeply unsettled by mentions of cannibalism (which actually helped her stop making jokes from overly literal misunderstandinga about eating loved ones! Thank you!), one of the stories that seemed the most unbelievable to her is actually a realistic caution about avoidable terror (as, yes, the heart of a healthy-seeming child can give out as an adult's can), and what are the jobs mentioned. One aspect that stuck out to me is how the situations no longer feel contemporary; kids not at home aren't as often left to themselves without a guardian in view, communication methods have changed, etc.

I think this might be now, forty years after its original publication, more a book for nostalgic adults than children experiencing it for the first time. ( )

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

Cute book. It was a great book collection of scary stories for kids. I could see this as a great idea for a Halloween kids party, or around a campfire at night. Might even try something like that for my daughter and her friends now that they are getting around the age to enjoy it.

How I choose my rating:
1* Hated it. Had to force myself to finish it.
2** Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other then for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread again ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this again, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this books content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will definitely be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

These stories were so exciting when I was a kid and I loved the creepy illustrations that were in the book.

There are editions out that include all three books either in a box set or treasury edition.

These include stories with body horror, ghosts, phantoms, and ghoulies!

Recommended for middle-grade readers who can handle the sometimes frightening content. There are also some YouTube channels that read the stories.

**All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

This is a reread from my childhood. It’s one of the books that got me into to horror movies and books in general. The pictures are very macabre and stunning to young ones and they do give the creepy crawleys when you’re just a kid. This series is also especially fun to read aloud for Halloween. ( )

The stories are scary and it's obvious that some stories were inspiration of modern day horror films. Great read! ( )
