A collection of stories by

 
 
In this new addition to the series, author Robert D. San Souci and illustrator David Ouimet join forces to present 13 deliciously frightening tales. Elements of urban legend and folklore are utilized to weave powerful and suspenseful (yet age-appropriate) stories that young readers are sure to revisit, finding new meaning - and shivers - with each reading. In Dare to Be Scared 4, the stories range from "Fairy Godmother" to "A Really Scary Story" that should bear a label warning: Books can be dangerous! In "Snow Day," Connor soon discovers that you can't make big magic without paying for it big time. It's best to have a flashlight for under-the-covers story-reading that reveals what's really behind the closed doors of the "Principal's Office," on the railroad tracks at dusk in "Heading Home," and the eerie fate of 13-year-old Peter in "Moonrise." David Ouimet's unique scratchboard illustrations and Robert San D. Souci's compelling prose make this a welcome jaunt through the world of ghosts and ghouls along with the children trying to escape their clutches!
