Publisher's Summary

A collection of scary stories and poems for kids and young adults.
If you like tales that will chill you to the bone, make your skin crawl, and spoil your appetite, Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories is the collection of horror stories for you. These 23 tales of terror are sure to thrill. Find out what happens when you try to keep the skeleton in your closet a secret, when you clown around too much, and when you are too loud in the library. Included here are stories about getting too much sun, finding yourself in the dark surrounded by water, listening too closely to the whispers in the walls, as well as the fate of those who take candy from a stranger when it isn't Halloween. What happens when you're buried alive? What if you were to wake up as a giant bat? What if a person were to cross paths with a witch in the woods or a pirate crew of skeletons on the sea? Hear about these frightening dilemmas and find out what's really in that plum jelly. All this and more is here in Skeleton in the Closet and Other Scary Stories.
Are you brave enough to listen to all these horror stories?

Halloween Kind of Fun

This was quite a satisfying collection of short form horror stories. While some were truly horrifying, others were a nice mix of horror and comedy. I don't think these stories are too scary for kids or not scary enough for adults - to me, they can be enjoyed by anyone to likes a good spooky story!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Solid spooky tales, perfect for any campfire

As others have mentioned, the tales here are a bit more juvenile in nature than something from a King or Koontz, but for me that was part of the charm. Though the stories got progressively mature, sometimes it's the simplest of stories that are the scariest, and I can honestly say that in their own ways, a few of these creeped me out.

Like stories kids tend to tell each other, many of these (especially the titular tale) read like urban legend meant to curb certain behaviors. Because of this, our stories rarely have happy endings. This added to the creep out factor of some of the more haunting or gross tales, but it did start to color the experience for me. Hard to be fully immersed or root for a character when you've seen how things tend to end time and time again.

The narrator did a good job. He had a bit of an overly creepy tone at times, but given the subject matter and intended(?) audience, it fit well.

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. It's a tad on the short side for a credit, but for the content, I'd say it's worth while.
