Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories 3 joins his other popular collections of scary folklore, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, to give readers spooky, funny and fantastic tales guaranteed to raise goose bumps.

Who is the Wolf girl? Why is a hearse filled with men with yellow glowing eyes? Can a nightmare become reality? How do you avoid an appointment with Death?

Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozens scary stories -- and even a scary song -- all just right for reading along or for telling aloud in the dark..

From AudioFile:

Whether recounting a spine-tingling tale or singing a ghoulish song or describing a morbid game to play in the dark with friends, master storyteller George S. Irving is obviously enjoying himself. Together with requisite eerie music, creaking sound effects and ghostly moans, Irving's insane laugh, hysterical scream and command of a wide range of voices make this haunting, humorous and most importantly scary. Irving uses dramatic pauses effectively in his mesmerizing baritone or his deep bass. Geared toward preteens, this excellent mixture of stories showcases Irving's finesse both as a living being and . . . as a dead one. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
