Product description

Review

"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)

"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

"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

"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

From the Back Cover

Welcome to The Cabinet of Curiosities

Please enter.

No, really, come in. The Curators are delighted you are here. They invite you to turn a page, pull open a drawer, peek inside a room, slither into a nook. In fact, they insist.

Sometimes visitors to the cabinet find it rewarding to dive right into the middle. You could try that. You could flip back and forth. Start your exploration at the very end. Or the beginning.

The important thing is that you are here. Oh, do come in! The Curators guarantee you will find something . . . curious.

The Cabinet of Curiosities is a collection of eerie, mysterious, intriguing, and very short short stories presented by the cabinet's esteemed Curators, otherwise known as acclaimed authors Stefan Bachmann, Katherine Catmull, Claire Legrand, and Emma Trevayne.
