If you're looking for some scary stories to read around the campfire, at Halloween maybe, with the kids wide-eyed and never going to sleep--well, most definitely never going to sleep in the nearest haunted coffin--this book's for you.

"Hide-n-Go Coffin" tells of a little brother trying to prove he's big and strong. But there's a very modern twist waiting when he innocently slips into traditionally scary danger. The mood here: claustrophobic. Reading about it all made me a little panicky.

"Brother's Keeper" is the haunting tale of a boy obsessed with blaming his brother for everything. Zack is a pretty good kid who feels guilty about accusing his brother falsely, but not a good enough kid to confess.

"Grandpa's Suits" which contains a good grain of a story here, and a weird sweetness, but the ending just needed a little something more. One last creep-out moment or line. Unfortunately, I found a few grammar and spelling glitches here and there, particularly in the last story.
