Just scary enough for young thrill seekers!
My 8 year old LOVED this book. While a few of the shorter stories the kids told scared him, he said it was a good "scared" and not a "too scared". This book is great for young readers who want a little extra excitement in their read. My 6 year old was a little too scared to read this book, so we read through it together and he was fine.
We really loved how the family came together during the blackout and even though they told some scary stories, it was nice to see a family spending time together. And actually after the blackout, the family plans to purposefully have a blackout so they can do it all again! We loved that idea and have planned to do something similar in our family.
A great read for young readers. Like I mentioned above, it might be a little scary for younger readers, but it gives an extra thrill to those seeking it!
