Reviews

"A hefty sheaf of chillers--all short enough to share aloud and expertly cast to entice unwary middle graders a step or two into the shadows." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"This collection of 36 short dark fantasies . . . aspires to sit on the same shelf as Alvin Schwartz's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and succeeds admirably. . . . Readers who enjoy their Halloween chills all year round will find this anthology a delight." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"With school dismissed, it's time for pure pleasure reading. . . . The Cabinet of Curiosities . . . lets readers dip in and out of 36 spine-tingling tales." -- Shelf Awareness for Readers

"The stories are remarkable both for their uniformly high quality and for their distinctness from one another; the abundant atmospherics, including occasional stark black-and-white illustrations, provide a unifying sense of dread." -- The Horn Book

"For readers who have gloried in and graduated from Alvin Schwartz's collections of scary stories, the tales collected here will provide a deliciously tingly next step....All are engagingly unsettling in some way, with a select few crossing over into genuine nightmare territory." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
