What children's book of horror stories am I trying to remember?

When I was in third grade, I read a book of scary stories. It was certainly a book for children. On the cover was a humanoid monster with black and blue fur. It was snarling in front of a green sky over a green field. The field may have been a graveyard. One of the stories was about a house in which a murder occurred. I don't remember the title. Does the description sound familiar to anyone else?

Sounds like one of Bruce Coville's Books of... collections. Aliens or Monsters seems most likely.

Could it have been one of the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark books?

(That Wikipedia page lists a newer/different cover from the ones I remember. This is the edition from my childhood. Maybe it rings a bell?)

Best answer: Scary Stories For Sleep-Overs?

Response by poster: That's the one, mrcircles. I misremembered the color of the monster.
