Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

All those who enjoyed shuddering their way through Alvin Schwartz's first volume of Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark will find a satisfyingly spooky sequel in this new collection of the macabre, the funny, and the fantastic.Is it possible to die -- and not know it? What if a person is buried too soon? What happens to a thief foolish enough to rob a corpse, or to a murderer whose victim returns from the grave? Read about these terrifying predicaments as well as what happens when practical jokes produce gruesome consequences and initiations go awry.Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even a scary song -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark.If You Dare

Includes bibliographical references (p. 94-99).

More traditional and modern-day stories of ghosts, witches, vampires, "jump" stories, and scary songs.

Horn Book Review

Helquist's new illustrations for Schwartz's classic collections of ghost stories inhabit an altogether more benign universe than the nightmarish Stephen Gammell originals. These editions are handsome and accessible, ceding the stories themselves pride of place; now young readers have a choice of how scared they want to be--just a little, or a whole lot.
