Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Read these if you dare.” New York Times on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
“Whether the subject is a witch caught out, a girl dying of fright in a graveyard, or a wolf’s revenge on a bounty hunter, all are perfectly tailored for telling aloud.” Kirkus Reviews on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
“Narrator George S. Irving speaks, shouts, sings, and shrieks his way through Alvin Schwartz’s classic collections of spooky folklore….Schwartz’s stories are meant to be told, and Irving knows how to get every last jump and shiver out of them. Whether he’s singing “The Hearse Song,” building to crescendo in cumulative tales like “Clinkity-Clink,” or portraying a variety of accents, Irving is convincing…This makes an excellent choice for family listening.” AudioFile
“Sure to provoke chills along the spine.” Booklist on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
