This book contains seven folktales that have been retold and rewritten to be easily read. This book is level two so it's reading with help. The opening was what immediately drew me in. It says, "Most of us like scary stories because we like feeling scared. When there is no real danger, feeling scared is fun."
My favorite of the seven stories was "The Night It Rained". It is based off of the folktale called "The Ghostly Hitchhiker" and was spooky. What I loved about these stories is that they're creepy, but not too scary for children. It'll give them a fun fright.
Final Verdict: I recommend this to those children who love scary stories and are learning how to read. IN A DARK, DARK ROOM AND OTHER SCARY STORIES will stimulate their imagination and encourage children that reading is fun.
