Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“This one’s a creepy keeper.” - ALA Booklist

“It’s a party game: write a scary story that will take less than thirty seconds to read. With a party of seventy-five that includes such guests as Neil Gaiman, Sonya Sones, Jon Scieszka, and Margaret Atwood, the results are bound to be pretty good.” - Horn Book (starred review)

“This thrilling addition to the shiver-inducing arsenal will appeal to even the most reluctant of readers.” - School Library Journal

“Only have a minute to be scared? This is your book. Writing just a paragraph or a page, some of the best-loved kids’ book authors each contributed a compact creepy tale to this collection. A definite spook-fest.” - Washington Post
