Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Jennifer Prince

"The conversational writing style and simple sentence structure in this series facilitates use. At the beginning of each volume, the authors define the featured genre. The stories that follow escalate from “Scary” to “Very Scary” and “Freaky Scary” but they are calibrated to suit the audience. An icon of a teen’s face appears at the beginning of each story, with his comically dramatic facial expressions rating each. The selections are complemented by “Fear Facts” throughout, which provide oddball information such as, “According to a 2007 U.S. survey, 34 percent of Americans believe in ghosts” (Ghost Stories). Colorful, captioned illustrations appear on each page. Captivating, kid-friendly reading." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

SLJ Extra Helping - Dodie Ownes

"This volume is just scary enough for the brave middle school crowd and a terrific choice for older reluctant readers looking for a thrill. The combination of photographs, Fear Facts, and cobwebs and fingerprints in the margins creates a visually fun read. There's even a glossary, resource list, and index for the more scientifically inclined." - SLJ Extra Helping
