In the spirit of Halloween I thought I’d share a childhood favorite of mine. I don’t know if anyone remembers the “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” Books? They were a series of 3 books that were published in the 80’s and 90’s. The scary stories of the titles are pieces of folklore and urban legends collected and adapted by Alvin Schwartz.
I had 2 of the 3 books, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. I believe I still have them packed away somewhere.
I don’t know which I liked more, the stories or the illustrations which seemed almost too creepy for a child. I liked them, but then again I’ve always been a little strange. 😉
Some illustrations are below.
