Scary Stories Treasury

By: Alvin Schwartz

Genre: Horror

Alvin Schwartz’ series of horrifying tales will give you chills in your bones. There are many stories that you might not want to read all alone. Read them if you dare.

One of my favorite stories is called The Viper. It is about a woman who gets a phone call from someone who says he’s the Viper. He is actually a man who can’t pronounce his W’s. He is not the Viper, he is the Wiper. She gets really scared and calls the police. She hears a knock on the door and she’s relieved that the police are here. But is it really the police or the Viper?!

But this book isn’t all so scary. There is a whole chapter of tales that will not scare you but make you laugh.

I recommend this book to all readers who love the chill of horror. I rate this book five stars, for its hilarious and bone chilling illustrations, and amazingly scary tales to tell in the dark!
