really liked it

The illustrations were the really scary part of these books. I remember being afraid to turn the page and look at the next one when I was a kid, peeling the next page over gradually like a Band-Aid. One pictured effed me up so badly I had to tape a piece of construction paper over it so I could flip through the book without having a heart attack.

Kimmy I was going to write a comment but you wrote almost exactly the same thing I wanted to. I still have to cover my eyes for some of the pictures. lol

Becky Everhart Which picture was it?

Laurel Becky wrote: "Which picture was it?"

I think it was the one that accompanied The Thing. I think everyone has their own personal most haunting image though.

Katherine I remember the same thing!!

message 6: by Sadie (new)

Sadie I agree. The stories were silly and engrossing at best, but the pictures were horrific.

Dominique Fougere Augh! Your review embodies my same feelings towards that book. I, too, had to cover up the same illustration of The Thing. That image alone still makes me scared as an adult!

Arianna Delgado Nothing in that book scared me and I'm only 10 years old the only thing I did when I read Therese books was laugh until I cried it gave me some chills but not always

Arianna Delgado Sorry it auto corrected these

Susan I was the same way! I hated the ghost that looked like the face was melting off.
