A collection of scary stories for brave readers! If you like tales that will chill you to the bone, make your skin crawl, and spoil your appetite, Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories is the collection of horror stories for you. These twenty-three tales of terror are sure to thrill, as are the eerie illustrations created for each narrative.
A boy finds a skeleton in his closet.
Another hears a voice under his bathtub.
A class gets a substitute teacher who is a bit creepy and really into magic tricks.
Someone leaves their leftovers in the fridge too long.
A young man wakes up in the body of a giant bat.
Did that scarecrow move on its own?
A girl meets a wicked witch who turns people into firewood.
All this and many more creepy tales to tell in the dark!
Find out what happens when you try to keep the skeleton in your closet a secret, when you clown around too much, and when you are too loud in the library. Included here are stories about getting too much sun, finding yourself in the dark surrounded by water, listening too closely to the whispers in the walls, as well as the fate of those who take candy from a stranger when it isn't Halloween. What happens when you're buried alive? What if you were to wake up as a giant bat? What if a person were to cross paths with a witch in the woods or a pirate crew of skeletons on the sea? Read about these frightening dilemmas and find out what's really in that plum jelly. All this and more is here in Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories.
Are you brave enough to read all these horror stories?
Scary Stories ~ Spine-Chilling Horror
I requested and was granted a code for the Audible version of this book.
Before I start this, I should make it known that my kids helped with the reviewing. As it IS for kids, I had them listen to it with me, as I do all kids’ books. Makes sense, right? I’ve been harassed over this before, but honestly, I’d rather see how a kid felt about a book meant for him/her before buying. So that’s how I review. They liked this one, by the way. A lot.
This was good! My kids and I all thoroughly enjoyed it. They thought it was fun, and asked if we could listen to the stories again later when we could have a campfire. Obviously, I agreed. If we skip the last one. Friggin’ clowns, man. Why’d it have to be friggin’ clowns?? Each story was unique and well written, and a few made me think of Goosebumps; they would have fit nicely with those! My kids loved each story, but the 10-year-old was particularly taken with the one in the bath tub, I can’t remember its name, though. He really liked that one. The older one liked them all, but has an affinity for scarecrow stories, and he was rather pleased when we found a story about that. I like the first one, best. Don’t lie to your folks, kids! Bad things happen! LOL Anyway, we give the book rating of 4 to 5, the majority saying 5.
The narrator did a great job! His voice got suitably creepy when the story called for it, and his voicing of the creatures was amazing, he really brought them to life. His clown voice was good, too. Too good. I won’t be sleeping well. Friggin’ clowns… ANYWAY! He had a good tone and tempo, and he may have been the perfect person for this particular book. We rate him at 5 stars, as well.
Overall, Bob and the Pugglepires give this 5 Platypires!
