Just Right For Scary Readings

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2010-11-15) Excellent Permalink

This edition has the same stories as earlier editions, but is now illustrated by Brett Helquist. The illustrations are black & white drawings which chill the bones and brings new life to a bloody and deadly book. Just right for scary readings. This books will not be on the shelf, ever!
