"Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" by Alvin Schwartz

“There is a story here for everyone – skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney. Stephen Gammell’s splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories – and even scary songs – all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark… if you dare!”

*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
