Some boys and girls were at a party one night. There was a graveyard down the street, and they were talking about how scary it was.
Don't ever stand on a grave after dark, one of the boys said. The person inside will grab you.
A grave doesn't scare me, said one of the girls. I'll do it right now. . . .
Welcome to the macabre world of Scary Stories, where folklorist Alvin Schwartz offers up the most alarming collection of horror, dark revenge, and supernatural events of all time. Here is a selection of extraordinarily chilling tales along with spine-tingling illustrations by renowned artist Brett Helquist.
