Skeleton in the Closet is a collection of twenty-three tales of middle-grade horror that will chill to the bone, make skin crawl, and spoil appetites! Each of the tales are accompanied by eerie illustrations that are sure to thrill.
Find out what happens when you try to keep a secret and meet a creepy skeleton in the process. Discover what might happen if you clown around too much or when you yell in the library. Included in this collection are stories about getting too much sun, finding oneself in deep dark water, listening too closely to the whispers in the walls and those nasty earworm songs, as well as the fate of those who take candy from a stranger when it isn’t Halloween night. What happens to those who are buried alive? What might you do if you were to wake up as a gigantic bat creature? What would an angry witch in the woods do to those who cross her path? A pirate crew of skeletons on the sea might need new recruits and those tales of ghouls just might be real. Read about these frightening dilemmas and find out what is really in that plum jelly. All this and more is in Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories.
Do you think you are brave enough to read all these scary stories?
