I'm a committed horrorist, but I don't spend much time investigating children's entertainment, so please recommend collections of horror stories that are good for reading aloud. They have to be very short-- no longer than a page or two-- and they have to be scary. I love the illustrations in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
collections, but will the stories themselves scare kids? I've also found this
on Amazon. Are they good for reading aloud? I'm really hoping for some first-hand recommendations here.
