This book is full of scary stories. Three frogs were sitting on chairs and having tea and a picnic. When the parents left, they got scared because a scary frog came close and tied a rope to a tree. Then he tied him to the tree. When the parents got back, they weren't sure what had happened. They went home and drank tea.

In another story a girl and a boy grow up and get married. She always wore a green ribbon around her neck and wouldn?t tell him why. Then they grew older and she got sick. Her head fell off in the end.

I liked this book because I like scary stories. The Green Ribbon was my favorite story in the book. The stories made me happy because I like being scared.

I think other kids should read this book because it is a fun scary book to read. Kids who like scary stories will like this book.
