Summary

National Parenting Product Award


This spooky collection of haunting stories from the "Queen of Cold Blooded Tales", Roberta Simpson Brown, may well be The Scariest Stories Ever Told. These chilling tales are filled with familiar themes to make anyone feel safe - the grouchy old teacher, a family telling one another ghost stories in an old cabin, well meaning yet clueless parents - but jam packed with enough ghouls, ghosts, and menacing spirits to give anyone the chills.


The Scariest Stories Ever Told includes over 13 contemporary tales featuring children tackling (and sometimes getting tackled by) their fears. Meet sinister characters like the stick man, the shadows and the feathered thing. Take a peak at the haunted well, check out the school locker portal to the "other side" and buck up your courage to visit the creepy costume party. Children will love seeing characters their age confront sinister creatures and work up the courage to explore supernatural occurrences in everyday life.

No one is safe when the "Queen of Cold Blooded Tales" is around so be advised to make sure the lights are on and the doors are locked before opening this book. These stories about cemeteries, full moons, and scary farmhouses will teach readers the importance of courage, resourcefulness and responsibility.
