Pumpkin Head What could possibly lie in the creepy pumpkin farmer's private pumpkin patch?
Alien Candy What happens to an avid alien fan?
So on to the book of short stories. I enjoyed it, it brought back good memeories of reading as a teen. I think I will take this on my next camping trip and use it to read to others around the campfire. That's what it made me think of, telling scary stories around the campfire!
I enjoyed this book so much because of its intense realism,and how it leaves on the edge of your seat I recommend this book to kids 10,and up because of some scary content.
This book makes an wonderful addition to your colletion.
