Description
Scary stories. Everyone loves to hear them and everyone loves to tell them. Scary stories are particularly popular among upper-elementary and middle-school kids, and the selections included here have been specifically selected with them in mind. Contributed by storytellers who work in school and after-school settings, these stories have been crafted for telling out loud and have been tested before the most discerning critics the kids themselves. Includes enhanced features such as performance tips, background information on the stories, and profiles of the contributing storytellers. This collection works as on many levels: as an enticement for reluctant readers, as a resource book for adults who work with them, or as a collection for kids to share at campouts and sleepovers. Contributors include Larry G. Brown, Michael J. Caduto, Kevin Cordi, Lorna MacDonald Czarnota, Timothy E. Dillinger, Lyn Ford, Martha Hamilton & Mitch Weiss, Mary Hamilton, Mary Grace Ketner, Olga Loya, Margaret Read MacDonald, Jim May, Bobbie Pell, Gregorio C. Pedroza, James "Sparky" Rucker, Robert D. San Souci, Judy Sima, Wendy Welch, Nat Whitman, and Richard & Judy Dockrey Young."
