You may think ghosts are real. Some think they never exested. But maybe they do. Read this book before you judge. This book doesn't really tell you if they are real or not. This book tells stories about ghosts, and did a great job. If you don't like scary stories that much that is ok. This book isn't that scary, but to some people it may. I only have read a couple of stories but those were great stories. They didn't frighteen me a bit. Only some parts did. But believe me it is a terrific book.

Even More Short And Shivery; A Review By: Maris 29 Nov 2001

Even More Short and Shivery
By: Robert D. San Souci
Have you ever read a book that you were afraid to read because it was so frightening? For me this book was just like that. In my book there are forty- five scary stories, but I think the scariest one was "Knock, Knock, Knock." It's about this girl and her boyfriend that were going out to eat, but their car dies. It was a stormy night and a notice on the radio said that a crazy guy was on the loose, but the had to find a repair shop for their car. So her boy friend said he would go find one and when he came back he would knock on the car door three times. (spoiler)
Another spooky story was called "A Night Of Terrors." The story is mostly about a young girl and her dog. There is another scary maniac on the loose again and the girl is at home with her dog. She was feeling really depressed and her dog was under the bed. She put her hand down over the bed and he licked it as always. Then suddenly a police man burst in the door and told her she had to get out of the house.(spoiler) .
For me this was a really great book but my favorite short story was probably "Knock, Knock, Knock," because it seemed the scariest. The story I didn't really like was, "A Night Of Terrors," because it was really creepy and kind of sad. (spoiler) The characters in the story were either dead, scared to death, or completely crazy. I'm not sure if I want to read this story again, I probably have nightmares or just be freaked out.

Great Read- Especially for Folk Tales 6 Jun 2007
By K. Hubbard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been infatuated (and terrified) of scary stories ever since I could read. So it's no wonder that as soon as I picked up my first copy of Short of Shivery at my Elementary School Library, I had a difficult time putting it down. Even now, some odd 10 or 15 years later, I still love picking up these books at reading them again and again.

The stories are always fresh and colorful, (though some may be a bit tedious for younger kids) and the accompanying illustrations provide an excellent atmosphere to the book. Of course, it's 10 times more frightening when your 7 and suddenly the Murdering Rampage of some psychopath or ghost pops into your head while your trying to sleep, but in general, even adults can appreciate the folklore and mysticism of these short stories.

For any lover of urban legends, folklore, ghost stories, or paranormal, I'd definitely recommend this for a read.

I got this for my daughter's sixth birthday. She LOVES scary stories just like me. We've been enjoying picking out a story every night. She really loves the one about Tailypo.
