This book is mostly about how scary stories are true and some people think that it is impossible that these kinds of books are non-fiction. I read one story called ?Sounds.? This story was mostly about when the fishermen caught in a storm took shelter one night, and made a fireplace, but they never slept? they heard a woman screaming and blood was dripping down from the roof!

I read another one called ?The Wreck.? This story was mostly about when Fred and Jeanne were having a date with each other. Then when Fred was driving, Jeanne wasn?t there! Up ahead, he saw someone in a car crash, and it was Jeanne!

I think that Alvin Schwartz is a really good author and I want him to write more of these books because they leave you in suspense. He is a great author and I want to see him and get his autograph.

My favorite part is when there was a woman screaming and blood was dripping down from the ceiling because it was very cool, and I like scary things. My least favorite part of the book was when I was reading this one story called, ?A Weird Blue Light.? It was about when they thought the blue light was Jean Lafitte?s pirate ship. There wasn?t any action.

I liked this book because I read Scary Stories 3 and it was very cool, so I started to read more scary stories. It is good so far! I recommend More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to people who like scary stories!
