    2. This series of children's horror stories was a favorite of my oldest son. He presented me with copies of the books as he was leaving to serve in the Navy. Nostalgia from his childhood. What he remembered the most was the creepy-cool artwork by Stephen Gammell. Imagine my horror when I found out (while I was re-reading the series) that when they reprinted the books as a 30th anniversary celebration, they changed the artwork. While Brett Helquist is a talented artist, what made this book series re [...]

    3. The "Scary Stories" trio was one of the more infamous books at my elementary school's library - everyone wanted to read them, and for good reason - they're fun, spooky, and the illustrations are both beautiful and downright terrifying! The stories are a collection of folktales, ghost stories, and campfire stories, meant to be read aloud with a group of friends. However, they're perfectly scary even if you're just reading them to yourself on a rainy afternoon. The stories within these three books [...]

    4. 4.5 starsYES! YES! YES!Finally, I got the chance to read the final set of stories from Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell’s controversial yet popular series, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” called “Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones!” In celebration of Halloween, I have decided to revisit this little gem of a series again and I was seriously not disappointed!This book mostly has a set of scary stories that will haunt you in your sleep, so here are a couple of stories o [...]

    5. Duh, assholes.Did you know there's a section in the back that tells the origins of all the stories? I didn't. Because that's about the last thing I wanted to read as a kid. Oh, a bunch of text with almost no pictures, and it references other books and shit? NO THANKS. But as an adult, I have a modicum of patience. I don't know how to measure modicums, how many modicums you get to a gallon or whatever, but enough patience to read a few pages and learn some fascinating shit.

    6. One of the most memorable series of books from my childhood. The stories in the books aren't particularly scary; some are humorous, some are eerie, some will give a kid chillsme are not even original to Mr. Schwartz, and are the sort of urban-legend stories you hear around the campfire growing up.No, what makes these spectacular books stand out as fine examples of kindertrauma is Stephen Gammell's most excellent illustrations.Some of them still give me heart palpitations, even as an adult.I pull [...]

    7. after two other books i had feared the third would be missing something but it truly does is not. it's just as enchanting and scary as the first two and i can see myself rereading this series for years to come.

    8. I don’t think most of these stories were particularly scary or well told, but they’re kinda fun, and some had a good creepy base or nice chilling elements. The thing I found most interesting were the notes at the back, where the author described the history or origins or the story, along with noting similar stories and talking about story categories and classifications, according to folklorists. Don’t skip those fascinating notes. Nice illustrations, too. More accurate rating: 3.5

    9. This is a collection of strange, scary, shocking, gross and funny stories for older children. The tales presented are an interesting mix of old and new and our girls loved them. I was less enthused about the collection, although a good storyteller could have a lot of fun with these stories. The illustrations were scarier than the tales, in my opinion, but overall it was an interesting compilation. We've also read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

A poltergeist that specializes in unscrewing bottle-capsa couple who bring home a strange-looking little dog from Mexico, only to be told that it's a sewer ratddenly vanishing friends, relatives, and animalsa Texas girl raised by wolves- -yes, it's a new collection of horribilia: chillers, ghost stories, and urban legends, retold in an appropriately matter-of- fact way.Schwartz gives most of the tales a modern setting, provides hints for storytellers, discusses variants, and--as in two previous [...]

    11. Although I am a huge fan of Gammell's work, I feel like the stories in here could have been written a little better. Some are only a paragraph long, which in my mind is not enough to tell a story fully and completely. I must say I enjoyed both the writing and the artwork in the first book much more.

    12. This will never not be one of my favorite series! I may not be as spooked like I was as a child but they are classic! Also the mention of my hometown is pretty cool too! I love the old illustrations but Brett Heloquist is one of my favorite illustrators ever and I can't complain if he did the new art!

    13. I'm a 31 year old man and I read some of these stories before bed and they creeped me the fuck out. The illustrations are truly terrifying. Well done, Stephen Gammell. Well done.

    14. This book is about scary stories that will chill your bones. There is over 20 scary stories. My faviorite story is foot steps it's about2 girls and they think there mom is out and soon they hear footsteps and they think it's there mom but soon they knew it was not there mother so the girl starts yelling at the 'man' telling him to get out. I recommend this book to people that like scary books

    15. Schwartz, Alvin. (1991). Scary stories 3: More tales to chill your bones. New York: Harper Collins.Categories: Controversial books, supernatural stories, folklore and legends, short stories, series26 traditional and modern-day scary stories are presented in this book. The gruesome topics - death, ghosts, eating body parts from a dead person, dying from fear, nightmares - have made this book and the others in the series targets for frequent challenges. In the back of the book are notes about the [...]

    16. Those of us born in the 1980s I think had it pretty good. We got all the good Nickelodeon shows (You Can't Do That On Television, Are You Afraid of the Dark, All That, Roundhouse, all the cool Euro-anime-esque cartoon shows like Spartakus), Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, books like Wait Til Helen Comes and Dollhouse Murders. All those were awesome and at the risk of sounding uber condescending, I feel for the kids who grew up without all that we 80s and 90s kids got. But what real [...]

    18. Alvin Schwartz has done an excellent job of maintaining the quality of his scary stories in this third volume to the series. In each of these books, there are some funny stories, some folklore songs, some stories that are just more interesting than truly frightening, but in each book there are also one or two or three tales that really ARE very scary, and make my flesh run cold. In this particular collection, "Harold" and "The Red Spot" give me chills, but it is the haunting "Maybe You Will Reme [...]

    19. The truth is that the third and final Scary Stories book isn't quite as good as the first two. But it's still a classic of starter horror, and I still love it through my nostalgia goggles. Again, short, creepy, archetypal stories perfect for sleepovers.The newest edition has art by Brett Helquist, which is pretty spooky but just makes me appreciate Stephen Gammell's art. Which was nightmare-inducing, surreal, and I loved it all. I guess I'll just have to keep both editions.

    20. I started reading this book to my cousin and my sister. They both really enjoyed the book and retold stories to my family. My personal favorite story was "The Bus Stop" I've heard the story told in a variety of different ways, so it was nice to read this version. I was surprised to learn that a similar story was told in ancient Rome. I look forward to reading the rest of the Scary Stories series during the summer on a camping trip.

    21. I enjoyed reading these stories. I really liked how there was more than one short story. I thought it was an easy book but I liked being surprised at the end of each story. I also liked the way there were a variety of stories and not just the same. I would recommend this book to any one who likes scary stories.

    22. Want a story to chill your bones this would be perfect. Who knows if they are real or fake. But you will have nightmares reading this . I was scared when I read this but if I like it you will too. Scary stories has a twist to it because you will never hear the end to the story . This book is one of the many made. This book is great and I recommend this book to people who like horror.

    23. This book is THE BEST SCARY BOOK. i was scared of turning the page and see whats gonna pop up. i got scared a few times and by a few i mean 5 times. I think its a good book to read in the night because u can scare ur siblings, there is parts where it says *yell*.

    24. These were such fun growing up, especially around Halloween. I remember my friends and I passing books like this and the original around in Elementary school. Fun party games, short stories, fun poetry that makes the kid feel older and into "fun, forbidden" type of stuff.

    25. im nine years old i read i didnt sleep for days but it is one of the best books to tell in the dark i love it and is terrified by it enjoy it!!!!!!!!!
