Review to be emailed:
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Stine presents 13 stories of suspense and horror in this collection by the writers of the 'hottest' names in thriller writing. (I wonder if he chose 13 because it is sometimes known as an unlucky number?) Each story begins rather blandly, but builds to the end with much suspense and/or horror. My favorites are' Shadow Children' and 'The Poison Ring.' Another realm is introduced in Shadow Children where shadow versions can replace real children. In The Poison Ring, a girl is sent on a trail of deception and danger. All of the other stories are very, very haunting.
