The Spookiest Campfire Stories: Forty Frightening Tales Told by the Firelight

We rated this book:


There isn’t much that’s more fun than sitting around a campfire, roasting hot dogs or marshmallows and telling stories. It’s a great summertime tradition. And the kind of stories best told around a campfire are scary ones — the scarier the better. This book has forty spooky stories perfect for telling around a crackling fire. Some are written by Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker and other classic storytellers, but most are ghost stories and dark tales retold by S. E. Schlosser. He is quite the master of retelling tales in hair-raising ways. This book is one in a long string of Spooky Tale books — one for nearly every region and many states in the country, as well as Canada, Yellowstone, and another Campfire book. All of the stories in this book have been published in other Spooky Tale books, but still this is a nice collection specifically made to carry along on a camping trip. The stories are spooky enough to send some chills down the spine, but probably not scary enough to lose sleep over. Many would be appropriate for children. The writing is clean and vibrant, the characters are well-drawn, and the stories are fun.
