A Book for the BraveBook - 1994
"What's that squishing up the stairs?Who just thumped from inside the closet?Why does it get so dark when the lights are out?! Here's a collection of poems and stories designed to help young readers scale their fears down to size by laughing out loud at the things that make them scared silly.With his characteristic whimsy and humor, Marc Brown has collected an array of loveable ghosts, ghouls, and witches, not to mention a pack of deliciously horrid monsters and a parcel of cowardly bullies.Selections include favorite frights from Florence Parry Heide, Bobbi Katz, and Ogden Nash as well as some original shivers specially cooked up for this volume by Marc Brown.Guaranteed to make even the most wide-eyed, white-knuckled youngster let loose with a giggle, Scared Silly is sure to cast a warm glow for seasons to come."
