Halloween Middle-Grade Spotlight- Don't Read This Book Before Bed: Thrills, Chills, and Hauntingly True Stories by Anna Claybourne
A spooky middle-grade read just in time for Halloween tomorrow! Prepare yourselves for, Don't Read This Book Before Bed: Thrills, Chills, and Hauntingly True Stories
by Anna Claybourne
Meet ghosts, ghouls, and zombies. Go inside haunted houses, hidden graveyards, and deadly secret passages. The Fright-o-meter rates each story for its level of scariness. Full of thrills and chills, this book will have you sleeping with a nightlight for sure. Read if you dare, but don't say we didn't warn you!
This is a well put together book for young readers looking for some chilling facts and stories. There is something for every one's fears inside. Along with amazing full-color picture spreads, there are also fun quizzes and inside story statistics. I think my favorite stories were the ones about haunted places on Earth. They tell you the full back story along with why people think these places are haunted. The pictures are plain old freaky too.
There are also chapters on creepy insects, strange occurrences and disappearances, and viruses that make you sick. I had a lot of fun reading this book. I even had to skip a couple of the insect chapters because they looked like they might pop off the pages. Another winner from National Geographic Kids. 5 stars!
