This book really has scary, scary, stories and good ones too. My favorite one is In a Dark, Dark Room. It always repeats "dark." This story is about a ghost locked in a treasure chest. He was stuck for many, many years.Somebody opened the chest...the ghost was free! Guess what he did.

You should read this book if you like scary stories. There is another story called The Green Ribbon. This girl always wears a green ribbon around her neck. A boy asks her "Why do you always wear that ribbon?". Then she says "It's none of your business!" They became old. Read this one if you like surprises.
