The Kingfisher Book of Scary Stories
compiled by Chris Powling, illustrated by Peter Bailey

Here are ghouls, goblins, and ghosts galore! With its chilling mix of contemporary stories and retellings of old favorites, this anthology is illustrated with haunting detail and offers a satisfying, spooky read. The tales from top-notch writers make this an ideal read-aloud for Halloween, and a must-have gift book for all young fright fans.

Among the scary stories included are:
Widdershins by Ann Turnbull
A Face in the Dark by Ruskin Bond
The Bravest Man in the World retold by Robert Hull
Tsipporah by Adèle Geras
An Oddment by Chris Powling
Bush Medicine by Faustin Charles
Mine by Anthony Masters
A Loathly Lady by Susan Price
The Ghost on Saturday Night by Sid Fleischman
Siren Song by Vivien Alcock

Recommended especially for sleep-overs where the stories will be read aloud.

Age Range: 7-10 years

This is a good introduction into scary stories for children because there isn't much blood or gore--it's mostly psychological thriller material.
