Reviews

With contributions that range from frightening to romantic, action-driven to lyrical, there should be something here for everyone.--School Library Journal
The collection's range of genres, from science fiction to vampire stories to realism, gives it broad appeal.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
The menace of darkness in these stories is...more campfire shivers than real danger, but that's precisely the appeal.--ALA Booklist
