In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories (I Can Read Book 2) (with CD)

I can’t stop reading this book! I love the CD too; I like to hear the scary voices telling the stories. This book is hilarious and scary at the same time. I liked all of the stories except the story called “The Night it Rained”–this has a really not-so-nice picture of a ghost and it scared me! All of the other drawings are very funny and make me laugh. My sister and I read this book a lot, like every day! It is easy to read and fun. I think some younger kids could be scared of the pictures. “In a Dark, Dark Room and Other Scary Stories” by Alvin Schwartz would be a perfect book for Halloween.
