A World Full of Spooky Stories: 50 Tales to Make Your Spine Tingle
This collection of fifty stories comes from all over the world, but not all of these stories are actually spooky. These stories are grouped together based on their settings, like graveyards, or under the sea, in the woods, or at a castle, so stories from different languages get grouped together. This would be a good book for Halloween, because the stories are about monsters and dead people and magic. Some of them can be creepy, so this is probably not a good book for very young kids. Sometimes the monsters are friendly, but sometimes the heroine or hero has to outsmart a witch or ogre. Some of these stories you may already know, like “Baba Yaga,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” or “Little Red Riding Hood.” My favorite story is “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” because the Green Knight tricks Gawain while testing his honor. I like the pictures, too. They aren’t realistic paintings, but the monsters look cool. The paintings are not scary, but it gives you something to imagine as you think about the stories. This is a fun book to read if you like stories from different countries with monsters and ghosts you maybe haven’t heard of yet.
