Quotes & Awards

  • “A selection of high-interest, fast-paced stories…Scary parts are exciting but tame enough to use with even the youngest middle school students…An important purchase.”


  • “Ten thrilling stories from stellar writers. There are ghost stories, a deeply touching tale of a wish-granting machine, and one about monsters that live in storm drains. “Pirate,” by Walter Dean Myers, is extraordinary…Brimming with choice stuff for guys who appreciate the uncanny, the uncouth, and the un-put-down-able.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lesley | 1/31/2014

    " I think 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys would enjoy the stories in this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by JennLynn | 1/13/2014

    " A fairly mediocre collection of stories that really aren't especially thrilling. They are at least as much about modern life, bullies etc. as ghosts and other supernatural creatures. Might be appealing for reluctant male middle school readers, but more serious readers will find it a light diversion and should look elsewhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Kyle | 1/11/2014

    " I thought that this book deserves a five star rating because it captured my attention. I though the best story was the Ghost Vision Glasses because it hooked me and was somewhat funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Moe | 12/29/2013

    " This collection of short stories was NOT very thrilling, but they were great short stories. I recommend it to parents to read aloud at night because they're short, even though I read it myself. My favorite story was the last one in which a boy gets a pair of goggles that helped him see ghosts. "
