Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark
Anyone who grew up in the 90s knows exactly what I am talking about when I say Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, for this book series is pure nostalgia for us 90s kids!
If you haven’t read any of the chilling stories yourself, I bet you’ve heard at least one of these stories or even seen parts of these short stories make their way into movies and television adaptations.
Author, Alvin Schwartz, created three books of nightmares and downright creepy stories alongside Stephen Gammell, who created disturbing illustrations to pair with each story. A collector of folklore and urban legends, Schwartz traveled the country and dug through many books, picking out his favorite, creepy details from each tale. Since 1990 to 2009 Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has been in the top ten banned books every year.
To bring back the good old days of telling scary stories in the dark, we’ve gathered four of the best scary story tales from Schwartz’s trilogy.
