~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Picked this up for a light reading break. These are young adult tales. Or summer campfire chillers. Most are morality tales with messages like Stay in School, Beware of Things That Seem Too Good To Be True, Be Compassionate, Don't Have Too High An Opinion of Yourself and the like.

The 9th tale, The Monkey's Ear was my favorite. Very witty! A humorous take on The Monkey's Paw, if you can imagine such a thing.

Fun Little Shiverers for Little Shavers is my pronouncement.
