The Oxford Book of Scarytales Summary


The Oxford Book of Scarytales by Edited by Dennis Pepper

Children know that it's great fun to be scared (but not frightened), and Dennis Pepper has carefully collected classic and contemporary legends, folktales, and poems that are sure to do the trick. From the mysteriously chilling to the comically bizarre, a wide variety of cultures and traditions are represented, retold and illustrated in cheerfully gruesome detail by some of the finest artists and writers for children. These are great stories to read aloud or by yourself over and over again to savor the chills of suspense and shivers of delight.
Beautifully packaged and designed, this collection not only entertains but also testifies to the exceptional powers of literature to heighten our emotions and stir our hearts.
