Looking for something a little creepy? How about thirty tales of eerie places and spooky sites. Campfire tales and stories for lonely nights, don't shudder in fear without it!

Author: Various, retold by Robert D. San Souci

In the mood for a little something creepy? Then A Terrifying Taste of Short & Shivery is for you. This book features 30 different horror stories. It's full of monstrous Ogres from Japan, creepy creatures from Africa, ancient legends from England and ghosts from the world over. You'll find something to put a chill in your spine no matter how tough you think you are.

The Bottom Line

Each tale of terror is a quick read - usually between two and seven pages long. They're perfect for a bus trip to school, a camping trip with your friends or a quick read with lunch. If you're feeling mean you can sneak up to your little brothers bedroom door and whisper horror stories to him when he's trying to go to sleep. There are even pictures to go with the stories, which help bring the creatures to life.

A Terrifying Taste of the Short & Shivery Rating: 5
